Buster Posey will miss the All-Star Game because of a lingering right hip issue that needs an injection to calm the inflammation.
The San Francisco Giants catcher has been bothered by the hip on and off all season.
"It's an honor to be selected to the All-Star Game. It's not something you take for granted and it's a decision I didn't come to lightly," Posey said. "Making that decision with the training staff and the medical staff, I just felt like that was going to be in my best interest and hopefully the best interest for the team as well."
Yadier Molina will replace Posey on the National League roster.
