The starting lineups for the National League and American League for Tuesday’s All-Star Game at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona have been made official by managers Bruce Bochy and Ron Washington.
For the host National League team, they’ll line up as follows:
Rickie Weeks 2B, Carlos Beltran DH, Matt Kemp CF, Prince Fielder 1B, Brian McCann C, Lance Berkman RF, Matt Holliday LF, Troy Tulowitzki SS, Scott Rolen 3B
There had been speculation that Tulowitzki might not start due to a minor injury, but he’s in there. The NL has only one other true SS on its roster, the Cubs’ Starlin Castro.
The visiting AL squad lines up this way:
Curtis Granderson CF, Asdrubal Cabrera SS, Adrian Gonzalez 1B, Jose Bautista RF, Josh Hamilton LF, Adrian Beltre 3B, David Ortiz DH, Robinson Cano 2B, Alex Avila C
The DH is used in the All-Star Game, thus the starting pitchers, the NL’s Roy Halladay and the AL’s Jered Weaver, will not bat.
