Seattle adds two more All-Stars…Rodriguez, Kirby to the roster
The Seattle Mariners have added two more All-Stars to their roster.
The Major League Baseball office announced on Friday that Seattle outfielder Julio Rodriguez and right-hander George Kirby have been added to the All-Star team.
The two players replace Jordan Alvarez (Houston) and Shane McClanahan (Tampa Bay), who will miss the All-Star Game due to injury.
Rodriguez, last year’s American League Rookie of the Year, is batting .246 with a .309 on-base percentage, .414 slugging percentage, 13 home runs and 46 RBIs in 81 games this season. It’s his second straight All-Star selection.바카라사이트
