Webb replaces
Fuentes in star game

NEW YORK — Reigning Cy Young winner Brandon Webb of the Arizona Diamondbacks will replace injured Colorado reliever Brian Fuentes on the NL roster for the All-Star game.

Webb was 8-6 with a 3.27 ERA and tied for the third in the league with 104 strikeouts going into Saturday night’s start at Cincinnati.

The All-Star game will be Tuesday night in San Francisco.

Webb played in his first All-Star game last season, pitching an impressive inning in relief.

He struck out Derek Jeter, retired David Ortiz on a popup and got Alex Rodriguez on a grounder.

The right-hander was among five pitchers who were candidates for the final NL All-Star spot in Internet voting. San Diego’s Chris Young won that balloting.

Fuentes, who has a strained back muscle, won his spot in player voting. Webb was the top vote-getter among NL pitchers on the player ballot who were not chosen.

The left-handed Fuentes is 0-4 with a 4.06 ERA and 20 saves. His injury is expected to sideline him until after the All-Star break.

Fuentes recently lost his job as the Rockies closer after blowing four straight save chances. He said he still plans to make the trip to San Francisco to take part in the festivities.

Jockey Guidry
postpones retirement

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Jockey Mark Guidry has postponed his retirement for a few months while he waits to begin a second career as a racing official.

Guidry, 48, had planned to retire in August, but will keep riding until November. He is waiting for a school for prospective stewards at the University of Louisville to begin.

“I didn’t want to just be sitting around and not doing anything,” Guidry said. “Whenever I do stop, I want to have something to look forward to, to jump right into.”

Guidry became the 21st jockey to reach 5,000 wins when he rode Chippewa Trail to victory in the first race at Churchill Downs on May 4. He is the 11th leading rider during Churchill Downs’ spring meet, which concludes Sunday.

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic — Jose Jimenez, who threw a no-hitter as a rookie with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1999, was one of two Dominican athletes removed from the Pan American Games on Saturday after they tested positive for banned substances.

Jimenez, who tested positive for anabolic steroids, turned 34 on Saturday.
