The A's head into a three-game series against the Seattle Mariners before the All-Star break with some additional All-Star news of their own: Reliever Liam Hendriks has been added to the American League squad to fill in for Tampa Bay's Charlie Morton.

He will join A's third baseman Matt Chapman for the 90th Midsummer Classic on Tuesday, July 9. 

Brett Anderson will take the mound Friday night at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, with the rest of the lineup looking relatively the same, minus an absence of Jurickson Profar. He has been replaced by Franklin Barreto at second base, who will bat ninth.

Anderson is coming off a hot start against the Angels on June 29 when he threw 7 2/3 scoreless frames. He will face the M's for the third time this season. The last time he went against the team, he dazzled on the mound, pitching 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball. 

Seattle will have Yusei Kikuchi on the hill, who is not as successful in his last several outings. He's currently 1-4 with an 8.42 ERA in his last seven starts, with 19 strikeouts and 18 walks in 31 innings. 

Here are how the lineups look to shape up as the Mariners host the A's. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. PT, with pregame coverage beginning at 6:30. You can follow the action on NBC Sports California or download and streaming on the MyTeams app
