MLB Announces 2024 All-Star Rosters

The starting lineups for the 94th All-Star Game were revealed earlier this week, and the league now announced the rest of the National League and American League rosters for the upcoming Midsummer Classic on July 16 in Arlington.  Each roster is comprised of 32 players — the nine starting position players determined by fan voting, and then 23 pitchers and backup position players selected by both a player ballot and input from the Commissioner’s office.

Specifically, the league’s share of the reserve picks will help adhere to the stipulation that every team must have at least one All-Star rep.  This rule could also be observed via substitutions that will inevitably be named to the rosters in the coming days, as some players won’t participate in the All-Star Game due to injury or personal choice.  The starting pitchers for the ASG won’t be announced until July 15, with those decisions made by each team’s manager (Diamondbacks skipper Torey Lovullo for the National League, and the Rangers’ Bruce Bochy for the American League).

The Phillies own baseball’s best record, so it isn’t surprising that they led the field with seven players named to the NL team.  The Dodgers had six players named to the NL squad, while the Guardians and Padres each had five players receive All-Star nods.  Thirty-two of the players selected are first-time All-Stars, and four are rookies to MLB altogether — Shota Imanaga, Mason Miller, Jackson Merrill, and Paul Skenes.
