Fernando Rodney – American League All-Star

American League All-Star manager John Farrell of the Boston Red Sox announced today, in conjunction with Major League Baseball, that Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney will replace David Price of the Tampa Bay Rays on the A.L.’s active roster for the 85th All-Star Game.

Price, a four-time All-Star who was selected this year by Farrell, will be inactive in the All-Star Game but is invited to attend with full All-Star honors.  Rodney, 37, is now a two-time All-Star.  He and Price, who were then Rays teammates, both represented the A.L. in the 2012 Midsummer Classic.  In his first year in the Pacific Northwest, Rodney has posted a 1.98 ERA and an A.L-leading 27 saves in 37 games.  The Dominican Republic native has struck out 42 batters in 36.1 innings (29 H, 12 BB).  Rodney joins teammates Felix Hernandez, Robinson Cano and Kyle Seager on the A.L.’s active roster.

This is the first time that the Mariners will have at least four All-Star representatives since Ichiro Suzuki, Edgar Martinez, Jamie Moyer, Shigetoshi Hasegawa and Bret Boone represented the team in 2003.
