Major League Baseball announced the starters for the 91st All-Star Game on Thursday after fan voting concluded.
The second and final phase of MLB’s All-Star voting process has concluded, meaning the starting lineups for the 91st All-Star Game are now set.
The league implemented a two-part voting process this season, which resulted in nine first-time All-Stars being elected by the fans to start this year’s game. Headliners include Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr., Blue Jays first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani, who was voted to start as the AL’s designated hitter.
Mike Trout was voted as one of the starting outfielders for the AL, though he will be unable to play as he recovers from a strained calf. The Blue Jays led all teams with three players making the starting lineup.
The rest of MLB’s All-Stars will be named on July 4. Pitchers and reserves for each team will be determined by a process that considers selections made by the Commissioner’s Office and the player ballot choices.
The National League team will be coached for the third consecutive year by Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, while Rays manager Kevin Cash will lead the American League side.
