Fans have a chance to decide who will Start 2021 MLB All-Star Game.
Now the rest of the roster will be filled when the reserves and pitchers are announced on Sunday afternoon.
The players who complete the 32-man roster of the U.S. and National League teams are selected by player voting and the Office of the Commissioner. These are the players who will be on the bench and the 12 pitchers who will be on the staff.
Some starting and reserve teams may miss the game due to injury, and some pitchers may not be able to participate in the All-Star Game because their rotation next week will cause them to miss the Midsummer Classic. The replacement of injured players and absent pitchers will be selected by the league and announced before the game. The injured starters will be replaced by the All-Star coaches (Kevin Cash and Dave Roberts), who will be selected from the reserve team voted by the players.
Sports news will follow the announcements of the reserve team and pitchers, and update each name that appears. The selection will be announced starting at 5:30 PM Eastern Time on Sunday, July 4.
