After initially being left off the American League roster, the Blue Jays closer has been named to the team as a replacement.
Osuna joins six other players as fill-ins for All-Stars who are unable to play:
They’ll be taking the place of the following players:
Castro, Keuchel, and Trout are all on the disabled list, while Darvish, Fulmer, and Kluber are scheduled to start for their respective teams on Sunday.
This is an exciting moment for Osuna, who has never played in the Midsummer Classic before in his career. The 22-year-old reliever joins teammate Justin Smoak, who was voted in by the fans as a starter at first base.
Osuna has been a bright light for Toronto this season, with a 2-0 record, 2.06 ERA, and 22 saves.
