Twins Get Late Addition to AL All-Star Roster
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 Taylor Rogers, a relief pitcher from the Minnesota Twins. AL All-Star Game manager Kevin Cash added Rogers as a late addition after news that both Gerrit Cole and Ysei Kikuchi will be inactive for Tuesday's festivities.
Taylor Rogers All-Star Game
In his sixth MLB season and sixth with theTwins, Rogers has been one of the most reliable arms in Minnesota's bullpen. On the year, the left-handed pitcher owns a 3.35 ERA and 1.115 WHIP across 37.2 innings pitched. He's recorded 13 games finished while striking out a stifling 12.9 batters per nine innings.
This is the first-ever All-Star Game nod for Rogers. Currently, the Twins continue to struggle (39-50 overall record) and remain long shots with their +8000 odds to win the AL Central, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
