MLB All-Star Game Rosters Announced For Midsummer Classic

Four A’s and Giants prospects selected to the MLB All Star Futures Game — when might they be big leaguers

The game, which will be played on July 17 in Washington, D.C., features five All-Stars from the defending World Series champion Houston Astros, matching the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox for the most in the league.

On Sunday, the rosters for the game were announced. Altuve will be just the second Astros player to start four All-Star Games, joining Hall of Famer Craig Biggio, who started four in a row for the NL squad from 1995-98 (all at second base). The second baseman also stole 39 bases for Lexington and was a South Atlantic League mid-season and postseason All-Star. Martinez has crushed 27 homers, 21 doubles and one triple while driving in 74 runs and posting a.329/.392/.646/1.039 line in 85 games this season for the Boston Red Sox.

The National League starters will be: Willson Contreras (catcher, Chicago Cubs), Freddie Freeman (first baseman, Atlanta Braves), Javier Baez (second baseman, Chicago Cubs), Brandon Crawford (shortstop, San Francisco Giants), Nolan Arenado (third baseman, Colorado Rockies), Nick Markakis (outfielder, Atlanta Braves), Bryce Harper (outfielder, Washington Nationals) and Matt Kemp (outfielder, Los Angeles Dodgers). He improved his numbers during 2012, recording a 14-4 record in 26 games pitching 134 innings.

This year, 30 of MLB's top 100 prospects take the field in a showdown of future top major-league talent.

As Rosenthal notes, Snell had a 0.63 ERA over four starts between the time players had to turn in their ballots and the day the All-Star rosters were unveiled. Steve Donohue, head athletic trainer of the New York Yankees, Kyle Turner, assistant athletic trainer of the Kansas City Royals, and James Clifford, Major League performance specialist for the Seattle Mariners, will round out the AL staff. He previously played in the 2016 All-Star Game as a member of the Nationals. MLB Network, MLB.com and SiriusXM also will provide comprehensive All-Star Week coverage.

Under the current system, the players received their paper ballots on June 15 and returned them shortly thereafter, about three weeks before the teams were named.
