The 2019 Major League Baseball All-Star Game is coming up Tuesday night in Cleveland. Last Sunday, MLB revealed full rosters for the 90th Midsummer Classic, and the league added three American League injury replacements on Wednesday.
1. George Springer RF, Houston Astros
2. Mike Trout, CF, Los Angeles Angels
3. Carlos Santana, 1B, Cleveland Indians
4. Alex Bregman, 3B, Houston Astros
5. Gary Sanchez, C, New York Yankees
6. Michael Brantley, LF, Houston Astros
7. J.D. Martinez, DH, Boston Red Sox
8. Jorge Polanco, SS, Minnesota Twins
9. DJ LeMahieu, 2B, New York Yankees
SP: Gerrit Cole, Houston Astros
Santana has also been fantastic for Cleveland in 2019. The 33-year-old, who is making his first All-Star appearance, is slugging a career-high .548 and Trout (.453) is the only AL hitter with a higher on-base percentage than Santana’s .418 mark.
The most interesting debate for Cora will be at starting pitcher. Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Charlie Morton leads the AL with a 2.36 ERA and ranks second with 3.2 FanGraphs wins above replacement.
Chicago White Sox breakout star Lucas Giolito and Houston Astros right-hander Gerrit Cole are both available after making their final starts of the first half on Saturday. Cole leads the AL with 13.1 strikeouts per nine innings and 170 total strikeouts. Alex Cora of the defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox will manage the American League, and Dave Roberts of the Los Angeles Dodgers will manage the National League for the second consecutive year.
Angels outfielder Mike Trout will make his eighth consecutive appearance, tied with Verlander and Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw for the most selections of all the 2019 All-Stars. Trout is the first All-Star to be voted in by the fans in seven straight seasons since Yankees’ Derek Jeter (2006-12) and he’ll look to become the first three-time winner of the game’s MVP Award, having taken home the hardware in back-to-back games in 2014 and 2015.
