Mets' Wright to replace injured Soriano on NL All-Star roster
Soriano, on the disabled list since June 12 with a broken left hand, will attend the festivities.
Wright, who is batting .288 with 17 home runs and 70 RBIs, will be making his third consecutive appearance in the All-Star Game. Wright was a fan-elected starter in 2006 and 2007.
