2011 MLB All-Star Game Rosters: Kevin Youkilis, Jhonny Peralta Added

Two more players were added to the 2011 MLB All-Star Game on Friday after Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter each withdrew from the game. Three players, including the two Yankee infielders and Shane Victorino, pulled-out on Friday, leaving both the National and American Leagues left scrambling to fill spots.

In the National League, Andre Either was added in place of Victorino and on Friday evening, the American League filled the holes left by Jeter and Rodriguez. According to FOXSports' Jon Morosi, Detroit Tigers' shortstop Jhonny Peralta and Boston Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis are now All-Stars, joining the game as late replacements.

With a few days to go until rosters or finalized, the changes may not be finished yet. As always, there's a chance players could opt not to play due to injury, freeing up even more spots in the Mid-Summer Classic.
