Rockies Manager Bud Black named coach for NL in All-Star Game

Boston Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts and designated hitter J.D. Martinez

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.

Another All-Star game roster is released, and another round of players are scratching their heads wondering why they were left off the team.

Cleveland third baseman Jose Ramirez will start for the American League, joined on the roster by teammates Corey Kluber, Trevor Bauer, Francisco Lindor and Michael Brantley. This process also helps drown out skeptics who say All-Star selections are "popularity contests" rather than merit based. 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. If he beats out Giancarlo Stanton and company, he will be joined by Betts, J.D. Martinez, Chris Sale, Mitch Moreland and Craig Kimbrel. He improved his numbers during 2012, recording a 14-4 record in 26 games pitching 134 innings.
