On Wednesday, the MLB unveiled the players who will get the starting nod for the upcoming 2024 All-Star game. The list, compiled of players who received the most votes from fans in Phase 2, is highlighted by Los Angeles Dodgers’ Shohei Ohtani, New York Yankees’ Juan Soto, and Philadelphia Phillies’ Trea Turner.  

Turner will start for the NL All-Star team on third base alongside his two Phillies teammates shortstop Alec Bohm and first baseman Bryce Harper, with the latter receiving an automatic spot as the top vote-getter in Phase 1.

The trip will be joined by Ohtani as Designated Hitter and a group consisting of Milwaukee Brewers’ duo William Contreras and Christian Yelich, Ketel Marte (Arizona Diamondbacks), and Jurickson Profar and Francisco Tatis Jr. of San Diego Padres.

Soto, on the other hand, is welcomed to the AL All-Star team by his Yankees teammate Aaron Judge. Like Harper, Judge received an automatic All-Star starting nod after getting the most votes in Phase 1.

Soto and Judge will be joined by Adley Rutschman (Baltimore Orioles), Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (Toronto Blue Jays), Jose Altuve (Houston Astros), Jose Ramirez (Cleveland Guardians), Gunnar Henderson (Orioles), Steven Kwan (Guardians), and Yordan Alvarez (Astros).

The MLB will share the names of All-Star reserves later this week. The 2024 MLB All-Star is scheduled to take place on July 16 and will be hosted by the Texas Rangers at their Globe Life Field.
