This is the third consecutive year that he will manage the team. The American League team will be led by David Cash. Each one will need to construct a lineup of nine fan-selected starters.
Pitchers and reserves for each team will be decided through a combination of Player Ballots and selections made by the Commissioner’s Office. The Chicago White Sox has plenty of worthy players to choose from.
Carlos Rodon has thrown a no-hitter and also has one of the lowest ERAs in baseball. Lance Lynn was undefeated in May and has a microscopic 1.23 ERA. Liam Hendriks was named AL Reliever of the Month in May and has 14 saves on the season.
Yermin Mercedes burst onto the scene and took the baseball world by storm with his historic start. Jose Abreu continues to be the model of consistency.
