Rockies star Nolan Arenado was selected as a starter for next month's MLB All Star Game in Cleveland

Bregman received 49.1 percent of the vote to run away with the selection over the Royals' Hunter Dozier (27.6 percent) and the Yankees' Gio Urshela (23.3 percent).

"It shows how good these young guys are", said Arenado, making his fifth All-Star appearance.

The 2019 AL and NL All-Star starters were unveiled Thursday on ESPN during "Google MLB All-Star Election Night", following the conclusion of the first-ever Google MLB All-Star Starters Election. All-Star starters have been elected by fans since 1970. Brantley edged Yankees slugger Aaron Judge by 0.9% for the final outfield spot.

Hardly a surprise, Javier Báez was named the NL's starting shortstop. Brantley is hitting.316 with 11 home runs and 43 RBIs, and will be starting the game in front of a crowd in Cleveland, where he played the first ten years of his career.

Democrat Harris clarifies: she won't ban private health insurance
She backs a government-sponsored Medicare-for-All approach and criticised those who say it is not politically feasible. 'No. She now says that the question that she was answering was about her own insurance. 'We would actually extend benefits.

Trout is set to be the sixth AL player to start six times before turning 28. It's Trout's eighth straight selection overall. "Every year it seems like I am slowing it down and embracing the experience".

Albert Pujols returned to Busch Stadium for the first time since leaving the Cardinals for the Angels in 2011, receiving multiple standing ovations and hitting a home run in the second game of the series. He homered in last year's All-Star Game, then staged a second-half tear that ended in him winning NL MVP.

"In spring, there were a lot of questions if I could do it again", Yelich said. Am I a good player? The 17 finalists moved on to the next round, where fans had 28 hours to vote for the starting lineups for this year's contest. The Starters Election included four other Astros - second baseman Jose Altuve, shortstop Carlos Correa, catcher Robinson Chirinos, and outfielder Josh Reddick - who were among the top three vote getters in the first round of voting (for Reddick, as an outfielder, top nine), which was enough to qualify for the Starters Election. Vote totals were reset prior to the final round. The reserves and pitchers are selected between player ballots and the Commissioner's Office.

The top prospects in all of baseball will ascend on Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio on Sunday, July 7 for the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game.
