NEW YORK - Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier has been named Shane Victorino's replacement on the National League All-Star roster.

Victorino won the Final Vote for the NL, but was placed on the disabled list Friday with a thumb injury and won't play in the All-Star game.

Ethier was also a Final Vote candidate, and made the All-Star team for the second consecutive year. He was voted a starter for the National League in 2010.

In 87 games this season, Ethier has batted .313 with a .382 on-base percentage, seven homers and 42 RBI. He also put together a 30-game hitting streak.

The All-Star Game is set for July 12 at Arizona's Chase Field.
