Heath Pearce to Miss All-Star Game with Hamstring Injury

Heath Pearce will miss the 2012 MLS All-Star Game due to a hamstring injury

AT&T MLS All-Star Head Coach Ben Olsen has selected San Jose Earthquakes defender Justin Morrow as a replacement for injured New York Red Bulls defender Heath Pearce on the roster for next Wednesday’s match against Chelsea FC (8:30 p.m., ESPN2, TeleFutura, TSN2).

Pearce has a right hamstring strain that kept him from playing in yesterday’s game against Chicago Fire.
