The MLB All-Star Game week is officially upon us. While the rosters and starting lineups have already been announced for both the American League and National League teams, a few late additions usually come to the mix.

That's exactly what happened with Andrew Kittredge of the Tampa Bay Rays. AL All-Star team manager Kevin Cash announced the addition of his right-handed pitcher to the American League roster. This addition comes after the rulings that both Gerrit Cole and Yusei Kikuchi will be inactive despite their initial selections.

Andrew Kittredge All-Star

Kittredge re-signed with the Rays on a minor league deal this past offseason. He ended up on the active roster to kick off the season and has been lights out, operating as both a starter and reliever. The 31-year-old righty has posted a 6-1 record along with a 1.47 ERA in 43.0 innings pitched.

This marks the first All-Star appearance in Kittredge's five-year MLB career. His Rays continue to roll heading into the second half of the season with their 53-37 overall record, sitting just 1.5 games back in the AL East standings. Currently, Tampa Bay owns +155 odds to win the division on FanDuel Sportsbook.
