The MLB All Star Game will take place next week and rosters were announced on Sunday evening. The National League squad will have four members from each of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Milwaukee Brewers, Cincinnati Reds, and St. Louis Cardinals.

The starters, as voted on by the fans are …

C: Yadier Molina, St. Louis

1B: Paul Goldschmidt, Arizona

2B: Chase Utley, Philadelphia

3B: Aramis Ramirez, Milwaukee

SS: Troy Tulowitzki, Colorado

OF: Andrew McCutchen, Pittsburgh

OF: Carlos Gomez, Milwaukee

OF: Yasiel Puig, Los Angeles

Tulowitzki, with just over 5.3 Million votes, led all players in the National League but was still third overall.

The NL reserves include …

C: Jonathan Lucroy, Milwaukee

C: Devin Mesoraco, Cincinnati

1B: Freddie Freeman, Atlanta

2B: Dee Gordon, Los Angeles

2B: Daniel Murphy, New York

3B: Todd Frazier, Cincinnati

SS: Starlin Castro, Chicago

OF: Charlie Blackmon, Colorado

OF: Josh Harrison, Pittsburgh

OF: Hunter Pence, San Francisco

Stanton was among the top three vote-getters for all outfielders for much of the voting period, but a late surge by Puig allowed him to step over him and into the starting lineup.

Finally, the pitchers named to the team include eight starters and five relievers.

SP: Clayton Kershaw, Los Angeles

SP: Zack Greinke, Los Angeles

SP: Madison Bumgarner, San Francisco

SP: Johnny Cueto, Cincinnati

Jeff Samardzija was also named to the NL team, but after being traded Friday evening to the Oakland A’s he will not participate in the game. He will, however, still receive the honor of having been a 2014 All Star.
