Three former Lexington Legends have been chosen as MLB All-Stars to be showcased during the All-Star Game at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. Jose Altuve (2010), J.D. Martinez (2010) and Mark Foltynewicz (2011 and 2012) have been named to the prestigious game.

Another All-Star game roster is released, and another round of players are scratching their heads wondering why they were left off the team. The Replay Official who will be based in the Replay Operations Center at MLB Advanced Media during the 2018 All-Star Game will be Marvin Hudson, a 20-year Major League Umpire. Both Cole (2015) and Springer (2017) will be making their second appearances in the Midsummer Classic. With Lexington in 2010, Jose Altuve batted.308 with 11 home runs and 45 RBIs in 94 games before being promoted.

The National League starters will be: Willson Contreras (catcher, Chicago Cubs), Freddie Freeman (first baseman, Atlanta Braves), Javier Baez (second baseman, Chicago Cubs), Brandon Crawford (shortstop, San Francisco Giants), Nolan Arenado (third baseman, Colorado Rockies), Nick Markakis (outfielder, Atlanta Braves), Bryce Harper (outfielder, Washington Nationals) and Matt Kemp (outfielder, Los Angeles Dodgers).


Major League Baseball (MLB) is the most historic professional sports league in the United States and consists of 30 member clubs in the USA and Canada, representing the highest level of professional baseball.

He's been an above-average hitter for more than a decade and will finally have an All-Star Game on his resume. This will be Matias' first Futures Game and is the lone representative of the Kansas City Royals.

The shortlist was made up of 9 position players decided by a fan vote, player's ballots decided 17 players - 9 position, 5 pitchers, 3 relievers and MLB Commissioner's office decided another 5 - 1 position, 4 pitchers. The 2018 Sirius XM All-Star Futures Game takes place Sunday, July 15 at 3 p.m. CT. MLB DC-based official scorer Dennis Hetrick will have scoring duties for the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game.
