Meet the 2018 American League All-Star Team

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

MLB’s 89th All-Star Game gets underway at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

With that being said, here is your 2018 American League All-Star team.

Catcher: Salvador Perez, Kansas City Royals Perez was named the AL’s starting catcher in the wake of Wilson Ramos’ hamstring injury. Perez’s offense has dropped off this year, as he’s hitting just .221, but he’s arguably the best defensive catcher in the game and has still slugged 13 home runs. This will be his sixth consecutive trip to the Midsummer Classic and his fourth as a starter. (AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall) (AP/Charlie Neibergall)

First base: Jose Abreu, Chicago White Sox Cuban-born slugger Jose Abreu is the first member of the White Sox to start an All-Star Game since Frank Thomas back in 1996. Despite getting off to a hot start, Abreu has really struggled in June and July. Despite his recent struggles, he is still hitting .259/.315/.448, and leads all American League second basemen with 27 doubles and 50 RBI. This is Abreu’s first time starting an All-Star Game — he previously made it as a reserve in his rookie season of 2014. (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh) (AP/Nam Y. Huh)

Second baseman: Jose Altuve, Houston Astros Not much of a surprise that the reigning American League MVP received more votes than anyone else in baseball. Through July 8, Altuve leads the AL in hits and his .338 batting average is second-best in the junior circuit. He leads all qualified second baseman in the AL in hits, batting average, on-base percentage and OPS. This is Altuve’s sixth All-Star Game and his third as a starter. Fun fact: Altuve made the National League All-Star team in 2012 and is the only person to play in All-Star Game for the same team in two different leagues. The Astros moved from the NL to the AL in 2013. The Milwaukee Brewers are the only other team to switch leagues. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong) (AP/Jae C. Hong)

Shortstop: Manny Machado, Baltimore Orioles Machado is no stranger to the All-Star Game but this is his first year playing as a full-time shortstop. There is no shortage of really good shortstops in the AL this year, but Machado ranks in the top three in batting average, on-base percentage, OPS and homers. His 21 homers place him in a four-way tie for eighth in the American League. Oriole fans might want to savor this game. Machado is a free agent at the end of the season and could be traded before then, meaning the All-Star Game could be Machado’s swan song as a member of the Orioles.

Outfielder: Aaron Judge, New York Yankees If you like home runs, you’ll love Aaron Judge. The reigning AL Rookie of the Year has already hit 25 of them through July 8, which puts in him a two-way tie for second place in all of baseball. Judge also ranks in the top five in the AL in slugging percentage, on-base percentage, OPS, runs scored and walks. This is Judge’s second straight All-Star appearance and second straight time in the starting lineup. (AP Photo/Frank Franklin II) (AP/Frank Franklin II)

Outfielder: Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels  Arguably the best player in all of baseball, Mike Trout is leading the majors in walks and on-base percentage. For qualified outfielders in American League, he rates in the top three for homers and batting average, and is in the top five for stolen bases. More than halfway through the season he is worth 6.6 wins above replacement, which is threatening to challenge the single-season MLB record for position players (14.1) set by some guy named Babe Ruth in 1923. This is Trout’s seventh-straight All-Star Game and his fifth time appearing in the starting lineup. (AP Photo/Kyusung Gong) (AP/Kyusung Gong)

DH: J.D. Martinez, Boston Red Sox There is no shortage of power in the AL’s starting lineup and J.D. Martinez plays a big role in that. Through July 8, he leads the majors in homers, RBI and total bases. His .329 batting average is the fourth-best in the majors, and he ranks in the top five in most offensive categories in the American League. This is Martinez’s second trip to the All-Star Game. Back in 2015, he was named to the AL All-Star team as a member of the Detroit Tigers, but was not a starter. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa) (AP/Charles Krupa)

He leads the AL is strikeouts, strikeouts per 9 innings and is the top-five in the league for ERA, wins above replacement for pitchers and hits per 9 innings. This is his seventh-straight All-Star Game and his third straight appearance as the starting pitcher. He started the All-Star Game last year and in 2016, when he was still on the White Sox.

Catcher: Wilson Ramos, Tampa Bay Rays Ramos was voted as the AL’s starting catcher, but a hamstring injury means he won’t be able to play in Tuesday’s game. Former National Wilson Ramos has bounced back after a rough 2017. He leads catchers in the American League with a .289 batting average and has the highest OPS (on-base percentage plus slugging percentage) for qualified catchers in the AL. This is second All-Star Game but his first as a starter. He previously played in the 2016 All-Star Game as a member of the Nationals. (AP Photo/Steve Nesius) (AP/Steve Nesius)

First baseman: Mitch Moreland, Boston Red Sox The 32-year-old Moreland is something of a surprise inclusion, but he’s having easily the best season of his nine-year MLB career. In addition to his 11 home runs, his .358 on-base percentage would rank second among AL first basemen, if he had enough at-bats to qualify. This is his first All-Star Game. (AP Photo/Winslow Townson) (AP/Winslow Townson)

Second baseman: Gleyber Torres, New York Yankees At just 21, the Venezuelan rookie has already established himself as a major power threat as a middle infielder, slugging 15 home runs in just 218 at-bats through July 8, second-most among AL second basemen. His .905 OPS would be the best among all big league second basemen if he had enough at-bats to qualify for a batting title. An injury to his right hip landed him on the disabled list, which means he will not appear in Tuesday’s game. (AP Photo/Adam Hunger) (AP/Adam Hunger)

Shortstop: Francisco Lindor, Cleveland Indians If it weren’t for Mike Trout, Lindor’s name would probably come up when people talk about the best players in the game. Through the All-Star break, he cracks the top ten in the AL for wins above replacement, runs scored, hits, total bases, doubles and homers and leads American League shortstops in home runs. This is Lindor’s third All-Star Game. (AP Photo/David Dermer) (AP/David Dermer)

Outfielder: Shin-Soo Choo, Texas Rangers The 14-year veteran outfielder has been a solid player throughout his career, but finally breaks through to his first All-Star team in 2018. His .399 on-base percentage trails only Mookie Betts and Mike Trout, but it’s his power production that has taken the leap at age 35. Sitting on a career high of 22 home runs, Choo has already hit 17 this year. This is his first All-Star Game. (AP Photo/Brandon Wade) (AP/Brandon Wade)

Outfielder: George Springer, Houston Astros Last year’s World Series MVP is actually having the worst all-around offensive season of his career, but that’s still better than most. Springer’s only batting .248, but he’s hit 15 home runs and is a solid enough defender across the outfield that he’s still been worth 2.3 wins above replacement. This is second All-Star Game, he was the starting left fielder for the American League last year. (AP Photo/Jeffrey McWhorter) (AP/Jeffrey McWhorter)

Pitcher: Jose Berrios, Minnesota Twins Berrios may fly under the radar a bit pitching up in Minnesota, but the 24-year-old Puerto Rican has been one of the better pitchers in the AL this year. He’s got the eighth-lowest WHIP (1.00), has struck out 114 batters in 114.1 innings pitched, and has held opposing hitters to a .209 batting average against.

This is Chapman’s fifth All-Star Game but his first with the American League. Chapman was named to the National League All-Star team as a member of the Reds in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.

At just 24 years old, this is already his second All-Star Game. He was named an All-Star in 2017 but didn’t wind up pitching in the game. (AP Photo/Matt Slocum) (AP/Matt Slocum)

Pitcher: Justin Verlander, Houston Astros At 35 years old, most power pitchers are in the twilight of their careers but not Verlander. After playing a huge role in leading the Astros to the team’s first World Series title, Verlander is picking up where he left off. He leads the AL in innings pitched, games started, and WHIP (walks plus hits divided by innings pitched). His 2.15 ERA is second best in the AL and ranks fourth in the league with 154 strikeouts. This will be his sixth All-Star Game and his first since 2013. The good news for NL hitters is they won’t have to face Verlander, since the Astros’ manager (who is also the manager for the AL on account of winning the pennant) already ruled Verlander won’t actually pitch in the game. Cleveland Indians starter Trevor Bauer will take his place. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip) (AP/David J. Phillip)
