MLB announces All-Star starting lineups


Major League Baseball announced the starting lineup for both the American League and the National League All-Star team, and it’s one of the first All-Star lineups that won’t feature a Yankee or a Red Sox player. Of course, the Red Sox have Brock Holt representing them in Cincinnati due to the rule every team needs a representative. Mark Teixeira and Brett Gardner are both reserves off the bench for the Yankees and Dellin Betances is one of the relievers in the American League bullpen. Without further ado, here’s the starting lineups (and the starters) for both teams:

American League:

Mike Trout CF
Josh Donaldson 3B
Albert Pujols 1B
Nelson Cruz DH
Lorenzo Cain RF
Adam Jones LF
Salvador Perez C
Jose Altuve 2B
Yunel Escobar SS

National League:

Andrew McCutchen CF
Todd Fraizer 3B
Bryce Harper RF
Paul Goldschmidt 1B
Buster Posey C
Anthony Rizzo DH
Jhonny Peralta SS
Joc Pederson LF
DJ LeMahieu 2B


American League: Dallas Keuchel (11-4, 2.23 ERA)
National League: Zack Greinke (8-2, 1.39 ERA)
