Here are your 2022 American League All-Star starters.

  • C – Alejandro Kirk – Toronto Blue Jays

Judge led the AL in during fan voting, guaranteeing his place as a starter in the outfield.

Surprisingly absent is MVP candidate Yordan Alvarez, who’s leading the MLB in OPS at 1.076 heading into Friday night’s action. Then again, with Ohtani taking the designated hitter spot, it’s hard to have too many issues with the slight.
