Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Devin Williams has been added to the National League's roster for the upcoming MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday, July 19.

Williams will replace Max Fried of the Atlanta Braves, who will be sitting out the exhibition showcase. It will be Williams' first All-Star appearance.

The 24-year-old reliever, in his fourth season with Milwaukee, has allowed just seven earned runs over 39 appearances – his 1.77 ERA leading the team among qualified pitchers. His 59 strikeouts is also tops among Brewers relievers.
