Los Angeles Angels right-hander Carlos Estevez and Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Geraldo Perdomo were selected as All-Stars.
The MLB Secretariat announced on the 8th (Korean time) that the two players were selected as substitutes. Both players are starting for the first time in their careers.
Estevez replaces Immanuel Classe (Cleveland), who gave up his All-Star appearance to be with his wife, who is about to give birth.
This season, in 35 games and 34 innings, he recorded an average ERA of 1.85, WHIP of 1.265, 0.8 home runs per 9 innings, 4.2 walks and 11.1 strikeouts. He kept the Angels’ backdoor with 2 holds and 21 saves in 24 save situations.
Perdomo will appear in the All-Stars in place of Dansby Swanson (Cubs), who gave up participating in the All-Stars due to a heel injury.
In 72 games this season, he stood out with a batting average of 0.274, an on-base percentage of 0.381, a slugging percentage of 0.416, 5 homers and 33 RBIs.
Meanwhile, the MLB Office announced on the same day that Adolis Garcia (Texas) and Austin Hays (Baltimore) were selected as American League All-Stars, replacing Aaron Judge and Mike Trout, who were confirmed not to attend.안전놀이터
