MLB All-Star Game 2023 injury replacements for Trout, Judge, Kershaw

Major League Baseball on Tuesday announced injury replacements for a trio of big stars who will not be able to play in next week’s All-Star Game.

Three-time MVP Mike Trout (broken hamate bone) of the Angels and reigning MVP Aaron Judge (toe) of the Yankees are out for the American League side after earning starting nods. The National League will be missing Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw, a starting candidate who will be unable to go at all due to a sore shoulder.

In their places step the Astros’ Kyle Tucker, the Rays’ Wander Franco and the Pirates’ David Bednar, respectively. Two other replacements named Tuesday are sure to please the hometown fans who will be on hand for the game in Seattle: the Mariners’ own Julio Rodriguez and George Kirby.
