Wood will be coming on to the team as a replacement on the roster for Clayton Kershaw who will not be pitching due to the fact that he is Sunday’s starter against the Kansas City Royals.

The Dodgers now have six All-Stars on the National League’s 2017 roster.
Wood will be joined by Clayton Kershaw, Corey Seager, Kenley Jansen, Cody Bellinger and National League Final Vote Winner, Justin Turner!
Alex Wood joining the team along with Justin Turner now means that both of the Los Angeles Dodger All-Star snubs have officially made the team.
This is the first time that the Dodgers have had six All-Stars on the team since 1981, according to Eric Stephen.

The Dodgers having six All-Stars also means that they have the most representatives of any National League team.
