7:11:PM: Four successors have been announced for Al-Koqb List of namesTaking the place of four players who were not part of the Midsummer Classic. Dodgers left-handed Tyler AndersonPadres infielder Jake Kronenworthand Braves third baseman Austin Riley He will join the National League team and join the Blue Jays second baseman Santiago spine Named to American League roster.
Spinal is being replaced. Jose AltuvePitch hit the knee on Thursday. Altuve sat out Friday’s action and returned to the Astros lineup tonight as DHS, but despite being good enough to play, Altuve and the Astros will use the All-Star break to get the second baseman fully back to 100 percent. Altuve was selected as an AL starter as a second baseman, but now as a keeper Andres Jimenez Take over as starter for Tuesday’s game.
Jazz Chisholm was named the NL’s starting second baseman, but the Marlins star will miss the game with a lower back injury. Chisholm has been on the 10-day injured list since June 28 but has been working out at Marlins spring camp and participating in baseball activities. There is no timeline for Chisholm’s return, but the team hopes Chisholm can start for the second half. Outside of Chisholm, Jeff McNeil He will be the NL rookie at Keystone, while Kronwersworth will assume a backup infield role.
Giants left Carlos Rodon He’s also battling injuries, opening the door for Anderson to earn his first All-Star nod in his seven-year career. Rodon has a blister and a cracked nail on the middle finger of his throwing hand and said Henry Shulman. And other reporters are skipping ASG to give the injury time to properly heal. There’s been no indication yet that Rodon wants to visit the injured list, and Rodon will get at least a full week off between starts after his layoff last Thursday.
Riley was perhaps the most glaring mistake from the first All-Star roster, given how the Braves slugger posted some huge numbers in the first half. However, as is often the case with “snubs”, the situation was corrected after other players began to interrupt. Riley takes his place Nolan ArenadoThe Cardinals third baseman is likely to use the rest to relieve a lingering back problem.
