The game, which will be played on July 17 in Washington, D.C., features five All-Stars from the defending World Series champion Houston Astros, matching the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox for the most in the league.

Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve led all Major League Baseball players with 4.84 million votes for the 2018 All-Star Game.

Second baseman Jose Altuve, who is making his sixth All-Star appearance and fifth consecutive, was selected as a starter. This will mark the second career All-Star assignment for Reynolds (2004), Marquez (2006) and Fletcher (2005), and the first for Muchlinski and Blaser. His 22 home runs lead all Major League first basemen, and he hits a long ball every 11.1 at-bats; that's the fewest at-bats per homer ratio in all of baseball.
