SEATTLE - With diapers in one arm and his young son in the other, Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager got the phone call Monday he was hoping to get a day earlier. Seager was selected to replace injured Toronto first baseman Edwin Encarnacion on the American Leagues roster for next weeks All-Star game. Encarnacion, who has 26 home runs and 70 RBIs, was put on the 15-day disabled list Monday because of a strained right quadriceps. Encarnacion was injured in Saturdays game against Oakland. Seager said he was just walking out of Babies"RUs with his wife and son when he noticed manager Lloyd McClendon calling. "I put the diapers down and answered the phone," Seager said. "It worked out pretty good." Seager becomes the third Seattle player selected for the July 15 game at Target Field in Minneapolis. The 26-year-old Seager, a first-time All-Star, entered Monday with a .274 average, 13 homers, 59 RBIs and 21 doubles. But those numbers came after a miserable first three weeks of the season that had Seager sitting at .156 with no homers and four RBIs through the first 19 games. In the 66 games since, Seager is hitting .304 with 57 RBIs and a .914 on base plus slugging. "The validation is just playing better and helping the team win. This stuff right here this is just ... its hard to describe," Seager said. "Its just something thats pretty cool and Im really, really happy about, obviously." McClendon wasnt worried about Seagers early struggles, knowing eventually the production would arrive. "The book says hes a good player and having talked with him and learning his personality, I knew that he was going to be OK, so I wasnt really worried about him," McClendon said. Seager will join teammates Felix Hernandez and second baseman Robinson Cano playing for the American League. Its the second time since 2004 Seattle has seen more than two players get selected for the All-Star game. Seagers brother, Corey, was also selected for Sundays All-Star Futures Game, a showcase for minor league talent. "Ive played with Felix a couple of years now and gotten to know Cano pretty good here. To go with a couple of guys that you know will be good," Seager said. Comprar Zapatillas Adidas Baratas .

Zapatillas Adidas Baratas Outlet España .ca presents a week long look at some of the teams and stories that will shape the up coming campaign.CHICAGO - Semyon Varlamov was busy all night, but he was thankful his teammates made sure he could see the puck.Nathan MacKinnon scored and set up a goal by Maxime Talbot in the opening 1:17, Varlamov finished with 54 saves for his third shutout of the season and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Chicago Blackhawks 2-0 on Tuesday night.Colorado was outshot by 30 but held on for its third win in four games behind Varlamovs 16th career shutout. The Avalanche improved to 7-3-2 in their last 12 as they avoided screening their goalie and quickly cleared loose pucks.The good thing is, the guys werent staying in front of me, Varlamov said. They were giving me a chance to see the puck all the time. That was key.And they played very well on the rebounds, he added. The Ds and forwards played very well in front of me.Varlamov has three straight wins against Chicago and has won four of his last five games against the Blackhawks. In the four wins, hes allowed just five goals.(Varlamov) had plenty of work out there, Colorado coach Patrick Roy said. If we want to have a chance to get back in the playoff picture, its going to start from him.MacKinnon, who won the Calder Trophy last season as the NHLs rookie of the year, scored 53 seconds into the game with just his second goal in his last 22 games. He had 24 goals and 39 assists in 2013-14 as an 18-year-old, but has just seven goals and 17 assists this season.We pressed early, MacKinnon said. Maybe we got a couple of shots that werent really quality shots, but thats OK.Corey Crawford finished with 22 saves for the Blackhawks, who had a season high in shots and dominated the pace as the game progressed. However, Chicago was blanked for the third time this season.The Blackhawks have given up the first goal in five straight games, and they admit poor starts have become an issue.Just a slow start, a couple of chances against and its in the back of the net, Chicago forward Patrick Sharp said. Its been a couple of games weve done that and we need to fix it quickly.After defenceman Johnny Oduya fell down, John Mitchell sent MacKinnon in alone andd he opened the scoring on a rising shot.dddddddddddd.The first shot goes in a lot lately, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. Weve got to make sure than cant happen.Colorado made it 2-0 just 24 seconds later as MacKinnon got past Niklas Hjalmarsson and broke in alone on Crawford again. He skated to edge of the crease and slipped a short pass to Talbot, who buried a shot from only a few feet out.The Blackhawks picked up their pace midway through the period and outshot the Avalanche 17-11 for the period.Chicago dictated the play for most of the scoreless second, outshooting Colorado 20-5, but the Blackhawks had limited close-in, screened and rebound attempts.Chicagos best chance came 5:40 into the period during a power play when Varlamov stopped Bryan Bickell on a rebound of Brad Richards shot from the blue line.Chicagos Brandon Saad hit the post with a shot 10 seconds into the third. The Blackhawks had the puck for most of the period, but Varlamov continued to stop initial shots and Avalanche cleared loose pucks.The third period, we put everything at the net, including bodies, which we didnt do a good job of the first 40 minutes, Quenneville said. But he made a couple of big saves in the third period with traffic.Saad poked a rebound under Varlamov with 2:17 left in the third, but the goal was disallowed because the whistle had blown.NOTES: Blackhawks F Kris Versteeg missed his second game with a left hand injury thats expected to keep him out a month. According to a statement from team physician, Dr. Michael Terry, Versteeg underwent a procedure today to further stabilize a metacarpal fracture in his left hand. We do not anticipate any significant changes in his return to play timetable and we continue to anticipate a full recovery. ... F Daniel Carcillo was a healthy scratch for the second straight game after not recording a point in his previous eight. His pace hasnt been the same as it was most of the year, Quenneville said. ... D Tim Erixon also was a healthy scratch. ... Colorado D Zach Redmond was a healthy scratch after skating in the warmups. ' ' '
