Not counting any players who withdraw from the event or any potential injuries, the rosters for the 2018 MLB All-Star Game are pretty much set.

The American League starters are as follows: Wilson Ramos (catcher, Tampa Bay Rays), Jose Abreu (first baseman, Chicago White Sox), Jose Altuve (second baseman, Houston Astros), Manny Machado (shortstop, Baltimore Orioles), Jose Ramirez (third baseman, Cleveland Indians), Mookie Betts (outfielder, Boston Red Sox), Mike Trout (outfielder, Los Angeles Angels), Aaron Judge (outfielder, New York Yankees) and J.D. Martinez (designated hitter, Boston Red Sox).
