    Today Major League Baseball announced that San Francisco Giants starter Carlos Rodon would replaced Milwaukee Brewers closer Josh Hader on the National League All-Star team. The reason given is that Hader will spend the time with family instead.

    Josh Hader last pitched for the Milwaukee Brewers on July 8. He has been among the best relievers in baseball this season and sports a ridiculous 1.88 ERA across 30 appearances. His 26 saves lead the league and if there's a deserving closer for an All-Star game it's Hader.

    Unfortunately for the Brewers star, Hader has dealt with multiple family issues and complications relating to the pregnancy of his first child. Complications with the pregnancy have impacted his wife, and their child, who was just born. Hader previously took a leave from the team at the end of May.


    MLB's original statement apparently had an error as it relates to Hader. He will not miss the series against the Minnesota Twins or any other games before the All-Star break. Instead, he will simply miss the All-Star Game due to family responsibilities.

    Hader addressed the media and skipping the All-Star Game on Tuesday.
