Tampa Bay Ray's Second Baseman Brandon Lowe, Minnesota's Twins Boss Jose Berrios and Boston Red Sox Shortstop Xander Bogaerts was named for the American League All-Star Team to damage compensation on Wednesday.
Lowe leads all rookies at home (16), RBI's (49) and doubles (17) and is a strong early candidate for AL Rookie of the Year.
Lowe replaces Angels infilder Tommy La Stella, who broke his right tibia as he fouled a ball from his rail against Rangers on Tuesday night. Lowe is also smashed up – he has had a bone contraction in Tuesday's fight against Orioles and is day to day.
Berrios, who is 8-4 with a 2.89 ERA in 17 starts for AL-leading twins, replaces teammate Jake Odorizzi, who went on the injured list Wednesday with blisters. Berrios was also an All-Star last season.
Bogaerts leads AL shortstops in many offensive categories. He beats .301 with 16 homers, 58 RBI's and a .933 OPS through 82 games this season.
Bogaerts replaces Rangers designated hitter Hunter Pence, who is at IL with a groin injury.
2019 MLB All-Star Game will take place on Tuesday at Progressive Field in Cleveland.
