By Hanamjik Han = Adolis Garcia (Texas Rangers) and Austin Hays (Baltimore Orioles) have been named as “alternate outfielders” to Major League Baseball’s (MLB) American League (AL) All-Star team.
Garcia and Hayes were selected by the MLB office on Monday to replace AL All-Star outfielders Aaron Judge (New York Yankees) and Mike Trout (Los Angeles Angels), who are unable to play in the All-Star Game due to injury.
Jersey and Trout are “fan-voted” All-Star selections. Players voted to the All-Star team by the fans are expected to start.
However, Judge tore a ligament in his right big toe and Trout fractured his left wrist.
In their place, Garcia and Hayes will start in the AL outfield for the MLB All-Star Game on June 12 at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington.토스카지노l
“With Garcia joining the AL All-Stars as the ‘starting outfielder,’ five members of the Texas club will start in the All-Star Game, marking the first time in 47 years since the 1976 Cincinnati Reds that five players from the same team have started in the All-Star Game,” according to the Associated Press.
Texas had four players selected to the AL All-Star team by fan vote: catcher Jonah Heim, second baseman Marcus Semien, third baseman Josh Chung and shortstop Corey Seager. With Garcia’s addition as a “starting outfielder,” the AL joins the 1939 Yankees and 1956, 1957, and 1976 Cincinnati as franchises with five “starting outfielders” on the All-Star team.
Shortstop Dansby Swanson (Chicago Cubs), a National League (NL) selection, was replaced by Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Gerardo Perdomo due to a sore left heel.
Cleveland Indians closer Imanuel Clase, an AL All-Star selection, lost his All-Star spot to Carlos Estevez (Los Angeles Angels) due to his wife’s impending birth.
