Mariners in action: Starting pitcher Luis Castillo is set for his third All-Star Game appearance and first with the Mariners, while homegrown stars Julio Rodríguez (center fielder, second appearance) and George Kirby (starting pitcher, first appearance) joined the AL squad as early injury replacements.

Extra local angle: Seattle’s own Corbin Carroll, a Lakeside School product who is a Rookie of the Year favorite, is set to start for the NL in the outfield. The availability for the Arizona Diamondbacks phenom and 2019 first-round MLB Draft pick may be touch and go, though, as he’s dealt with shoulder issues in recent games. Let’s also throw in Orioles catcher Adley Rutschman, a native of the Portland area who helped Oregon State win the 2018 College World Series. The 2019 first overall MLB Draft pick will make his All-Star Game debut in just his second MLB season.


Additional replacements: American League – Pablo López, P, MIN; Jordan Romano, P, TOR; Carlos Estévez, P, LAA; National League – Geraldo Perdomo, SS, ARI; Kodai Senga, P, NYM; Alex Cobb, P, SF; Corbin Burnes, P, MIL; Craig Kimbrel, P, PHI
