MLB All-Star Game rosters: Derek Jeter, Yasiel Puig named starters

Sunday July 6th, 2014

After months of voting, player campaigns and appeals, the results are in, and the starting lineups and rosters for the American League and National League All-Star teams have been announced. Through the online and in-stadium fan vote, as well as the votes of the players and the work of All-Star managers John Farrell and Mike Matheny, 66 players have been chosen to represent their teams and leagues in Minneapolis for the 85th annual All-Star Game on July 15. The final two names will be chosen through the Final Vote, as done by the fans.

The most notable name on the rosters is Derek Jeter, who will be appearing in his 14th and final All-Star Game after beating the White Sox' Alexei Ramirez in the fan vote at shortstop. The Yankees' captain will be making his ninth start and first appearance at a Midsummer Classic since 2012. The overall leading vote getter was Toronto's Jose Bautista, with over six million votes, edging out Mike Trout; Troy Tulowitzki was the most voted for player on the NL.

Six Oakland Athletics were named to the AL roster, including third base starter Josh Donaldson, the most among any team; Milwaukee was second with four players named on the NL side. The hometown Minnesota Twins had two players named: Reliever Glen Perkins and catcher Kurt Suzuki.

The Final Vote candidates for the AL are all pitchers: Houston's Dallas Keuchel, Cleveland's Corey Kluber, Los Angeles' Garrett Richards, Detroit's Rick Porcello and Chicago's Chris Sale. In the NL, the last spot is between Colorado's Justin Morneau, Chicago's Anthony Rizzo, Washington's Anthony Rendon, Miami's Casey McGehee, and Atlanta's Justin Upton.

Few surprises or major mistakes among AL, NL All-Star rosters

One player who was chosen but won't be playing: Jeff Samardzija. He was voted onto the team as a Cub, but as a result of Saturday's trade to Oakland, he won't be eligible to play in the game. Samardzija will be in attendance, however, and does get to keep his All-Star designation.

As a reminder, all 30 teams must have at least one representative at the All-Star Game, and any pitcher who pitches on July 13 is ineligible to take part in the game.

You can find the full 33-man rosters for each of the AL and NL below.
