The Toronto Blue Jays will have plenty of players to cheer for at the 2021 MLB All-Star game.

Toronto led all Major League clubs with three players selected to the game as Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Marcus Semien, and Teoscar Hernandez all earned starting All-Star game honors.

Guerrero will hold down first base for the American League. The 22-year-old slugger leads all of baseball in OPS and on-base percentage while sitting second to Shohei Ohtani in home runs.

Semien, one of Toronto's two big offseason signings, will man second base for the All-Star game. He leads all American League second basemen in batting average, OPS, hits, RBIs, and home runs.

The most surprising of those honored was Hernandez, the Blue Jays' 28-year-old outfielder. He beat out Cedric Mullins, Joey Gallo, and Adolis Garica to start alongside Aaron Judge and Mike Trout at the All-Star game.

The rest of the American League team will include Salvador Perez, Rafael Devers, Xander Bogart, and Shohei Ohtani as the team's DH.

Over on the National League side, Buster Posey will catch, Freddie Freeman will man first, Adam Frazier will play second, Nolan Arenado will play third, Fernando Tatis Jr. will play shortstop, and the three starting outfielders will be Ronald Acuña Jr., Nick Castellanos, and Jesse Winker.
