Rafael Furcal is an All Star. The Dodger shortstop is heading to Anaheim as a reserve after Mets shortstop Jose Reyes aggravated a right oblique injury during Saturday's game against Atlanta. Furcal is one of the hottest players in baseball right now. He has hit in 13 of his last 14 games, batting .450 with 4 homeruns, 20 runs scored and 15 runs batted in. Overall, Raffy is batting .333 with 5 homeruns and 54 RBI. Raffy joins fellow Dodgers Andre Ethier and Jonathon Broxton in Anaheim.
This is Furcal's second All-Star appearance. His first All-Star berth was in 2003 while with the Atlanta Braves. He went 1 for 3 in that game.
