The 2022 MLB All-Star Game will take place on Tuesday, July 19 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The starting lineups for the National and the American League were announced Friday night on ESPN. Atlanta’s Ronald Acuña Jr. and New York’s Aaron Judge already earned a spot by receiving the most votes during Phase 1 of the voting stage.

The Braves had several finalists up for starting nods but all of them came up short with the exception of Acuña. Dansby Swanson probably had the biggest claim to a spot but he was edged out by Trae Turner at shortstop who received 52 percent of the vote. Here is a look at the full list of starters:

National League

C - Willson Contreras
1B - Paul Goldschmidt
2B - Jazz Chisholm
SS - Trea Turner
3B - Manny Machado
OF - Ronald Acuña Jr.
OF - Mookie Betts
OF - Joc Pederson
DH - Bryce Harper

American League Starters

C - Alejandro Kirk
1B - Vladimir Guerrero
2B - Jose Altuve
SS - Tim Anderson
3B - Rafael Devers
OF - Aaron Judge
OF - Mike Trout

DH - Shohei Ohtani

The All-Star reserves will be announced on July 10 at 5:30 p.m. on ESPN. The Commissioner’s office announced Friday that Albert Pujols and Miguel Cabrera will be part of the rosters as “special selections” by Rob Manfred. That was one of the new wrinkles that was included in the new CBA.
