For now, two Cubs starting in the All-Star game, with NO Bryce Harper. Cool to see Josh Bell get the recognition he deserves. He’s been quietly unbelievable and the Pirates haven’t had a starter in the ASG for a while now.
Additionally, two starters are Braves, and their names aren’t Freddie Freeman or Josh Donaldson. Both Ozzie Albies and Ronald Acuna Jr. are slotted in for what is a very young All-Star cast that includes the likes of Cody Bellinger and Wilson Contreras.
The All-Star game is scheduled for July 9th in Cleveland at Progressive Field.
