NL and AL All-Star Team Starters Announced

The All-Star Game starters for both the NL and AL were announced tonight as voted by the fans of MLB.

The NL team will feature Willson Contreras, Freddie Freeman, Javier Baez, Brandon Crawford, Nolan Arenado, and Nick Markakis, Matt Kemp, and Bryce Harper.

Notably, on this site, no Mets position players made the team as starters. That being said, it is a near certainty that Jacob deGrom will make the roster, possibly as the only Met to represent the team at Nationals Park on July 17.

Meanwhile, the AL team will have Wilson Ramos, Jose Abreu, Jose Altuve, Manny Machado, Jose Ramirez, Mookie Betts, Mike Trout, Aaron Judge, and J.D. Martinez.

The latter of all of those is the AL designated hitter, which the NL will just incorporate a bench player for in place of a strict DH.
