Because Smoltz was one of five NL starting pitchers elected through the player ballot, his replacement was the pitcher with the sixth-highest number of votes. Oswalt (7-5, 3.52 ERA) will be making his third All-Star appearance.
Smoltz was scheduled to return to Atlanta on Thursday to meet with Braves doctors about his right shoulder discomfort.
