Quick Bit: Here’s a look at who will round out the 2022 MLB All-Star rosters.

Full Story:

On July 19, the best players in baseball will descend on Los Angeles for the 2022 MLB All-Star Game. And after fan voting concluded Friday and the starters were announced, it is time to learn who will join them at Dodger Stadium.

To date, there are only 10 players on each team that are known to be part of the 33-player teams. The nine starters were announced Friday, and commissioner Rob Manfred announced legendary sluggers Miguel Cabrera and Albert Pujols will be on each roster as special selections.

The reserves will be selected by player ballot and commissioner’s office selections. There will likely be 11 more batters named to each team and 12 pitchers to round out the 23 spots on each team. Each of the 30 MLB teams will have at least one representative on their team.

It will still be some time until the starting pitchers for each team are named. The managers for each of the two teams will announce who will open up the game on the hill the day prior to the All-Star Game.

MLB All-Star Game starters

The starters for the 2022 All-Star Game were announced on Friday, July 8. For the first time, both teams had nine starters announced in the first year the National League has had the designated hitter.

Voting was conducted in two rounds. As the top vote-getters after the first round, outfielders Aaron Judge and Ronald Acuna Jr. were named automatic starters without needing to go through the second round. The rest of the lineup was filled out in the second round, when fans picked between two finalists at each position — four for the remaining two outfield spots.

Here’s who was named the starters in 2022:
