Maddon: All-Star chance good for Farnsworth
MINNEAPOLIS -- Rays manager Joe Maddon reiterated Tuesday that he still thinks closer Kyle Farnsworth has a good chance to be added to the American League All-Star roster.

With a number of pitchers unable to pitch in the All-Star Game who will need to be replaced on the AL squad -- including Rays starter James Shields -- Farnsworth is among those who could be named as a replacement.

Maddon has not heard anything yet about whether Farnsworth will be added to the roster, but said that does not mean it cannot still happen. He noted that he did not hear about Rafael Soriano being named until it happened.

"I have gotten no calls whatsoever," Maddon said. "I have to believe that they have guys in mind."
