3 Brewers Selected to MLB All-Star Game

Posted: Updated:

AP/WKOW - 3 Brewers were picked to participate in the 2018 MLB All-Star Game on July 17th in Washington, D.C. Relief pitcher Josh Hader was picked, after leading the National League in strikeouts among relievers.  The two new outfielders for Milwaukee, Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich, were both picked as reserves.

Infielder Jesus Aguilar - who is currently tied for the lead in home runs in the National League (22) - is a part of the final vote to get into the game.  You can vote for Aguilar here until 3pm CT on Wednesday, July 11th.

Washington Nationals slugger Bryce Harper will be in his usual spot for the All-Star Game.

Harper has been voted into the starting lineup for the game at his home park in Washington. Harper is batting just .218 this season, but he has 21 homers and 50 RBIs.

Nick Markakis and Matt Kemp will join Harper in the NL outfield. Markakis has been a key performer for the surprising Atlanta Braves, and Kemp's return to the Los Angeles Dodgers has been a smashing success.

The All-Star rosters were unveiled Sunday night.

The Chicago Cubs will have two starters after catcher Willson Contreras and second baseman Javier Baez each won a close race at their position in fan balloting. Pitcher Jon Lester will also be a part of the festivities.

Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman, Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado and Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford round out the NL starting lineup.
