Major League Baseball to consider taking Justin Verlander's advice on All-Star voting

Major League Baseball to consider taking Justin Verlander's advice on All-Star voting

The MLB-All Star game will take place on July 17 at the Nationals Park in Washington D.C. when the American League All-Star Team take on the National League All-Star Team.

Outfielder Jo Adell has been selected to represent Team USA in the 2018 SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game.

With a total of 4.84 million votes, Jose Altuve was the leading vote getter among all Major League Baseball players for the 2018 All-Star Game.

Altuve will start at second base for the American League squad for the 4th consecutive season while making his 6th All-Star appearance overall. This will mark the second career All-Star assignment for Reynolds (2004), Marquez (2006) and Fletcher (2005), and the first for Muchlinski and Blaser. The Home Run Derby field will be announced next week.

Fans still have a say in who gets the final roster spot for both the American and National league and there could be some last minute changes on account of injuries or players opting not to play. He improved his numbers during 2012, recording a 14-4 record in 26 games pitching 134 innings.

Unfortunately, the process still isn't ideal, and more deserving players will either get in on the Final Vote, or are going to be enjoying the 89th Midsummer Classic at Nationals Park in Washington D.C. from their couch. He has struck out 46 batters and has allowed 35 hits in those innings. The 19-year-old has had an impressive start this season with the Legends, Single-A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, and now leads all levels of Minor League Baseball with 26 home runs and is the Royal's 3-best prospect, according to MLB Pipeline.

The National League's starting roster also includes hometown selection Bryce Harper in an outfield that also includes Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Markakis. FOX Deportes will provide Spanish language coverage in the United States, while ESPN Radio and ESPN Radio Deportes will provide exclusive national radio coverage of the All-Star Game.
