Three players have been added to Tuesday's All-Star Game as replacements, MLB announced Friday.
Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Max Muncy was added to the National League roster, while Cleveland Indians right-hander Shane Bieber and Oakland Athletics reliever Liam Hendriks both joined the American League squad.
Muncy is replacing Washington Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon, and Bieber and Hendriks take the spots of Texas Rangers starter Mike Minor and Tampa Bay Rays veteran Charlie Morton.
All three players will be making their first career All-Star Game appearances.
Muncy, who emerged from obscurity last season to become a critical player for the Dodgers, has continued his climb to stardom during the first half of 2019. The 28-year-old enters Friday's action hitting .276/.379/.543 with 21 homers, 59 RBIs, and 49 walks through 86 games this year, while playing three different infield positions.
