Miami Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez and Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney are the newest additions to the All-Star rosters.
Alvarez will replace injured Washington pitcher Jordan Zimmermann for Tuesday night’s All-Star game at Target Field in Minnesota.
Zimmermann left Friday night’s start against Philadelphia after 31⁄3 innings because of a right biceps injury.
Rodney will take the spot of Tampa Bay lefty David Price. Because of an illness, Price was pushed back in the Rays’ rotation to start Sunday, making him ineligible for the game.
Alvarez, a first-time All-Star, is 6-4 with a 2.63 ERA and three shutouts in 19 starts. He pitched a no-hitter against Detroit on the final day of the 2013 regular season.
