The votes are in and Major League Baseball announced the rosters for the All-Star Game in D.C. this season.

The official scorer for the 2018 All-Star Game will be MLB's Washington, DC-based scorer Ben Trittipoe.

Freeman was the leading vote-getter among National League players with more than 4 million votes in fan balloting.

The American League starters are as follows: Wilson Ramos (catcher, Tampa Bay Rays), Jose Abreu (first baseman, Chicago White Sox), Jose Altuve (second baseman, Houston Astros), Manny Machado (shortstop, Baltimore Orioles), Jose Ramirez (third baseman, Cleveland Indians), Mookie Betts (outfielder, Boston Red Sox), Mike Trout (outfielder, Los Angeles Angels), Aaron Judge (outfielder, New York Yankees) and J.D. Martinez (designated hitter, Boston Red Sox). This process also helps drown out skeptics who say All-Star selections are "popularity contests" rather than merit based.

Altuve is averaging 11.7 FanDuel points through 92 games while posting a.338/.404/.488 slash with 9 home runs, 13 steals, 44 RBI, and 61 runs scored across 406 plate appearances.
