2. Giancarlo Stanton, DH

3. Bryce Harper, RF

4. Buster Posey, C

5. Daniel Murphy, 2B

6. Nolan Arenado, 3B

7. Ryan Zimmerman, 1B

8. Marcell Ozuna, LF

9. Zack Cozart, SS

Max Scherzer, P

Despite the fact that the Dodgers will have six representatives at Miami for the game, not one of them cracked the starting lineup for Joe Maddon. When asked about why Maddon decided to choose Scherzer over Kershaw, Maddon said Max was the clear choice “numerically.”

Max Scherzer is 10-5 with a 2.10 ERA in 128 1/3 innings pitched, while Kershaw is 14-2 with a 2.18 ERA in 132. 1/3 innings pitched. However, in the defense of Maddon, Kershaw is ineligible to pitch in the game because he started the Dodgers final game before the break by throwing a complete game on Sunday.

But even without Kershaw expected to throw in tonight’s game, Cody Bellinger, Justin Turner, Corey Seager, Alex Wood and Kenley Jansen are all expected to be a part of the game at some capacity. So make sure to look out for the boys in blue.

The All-Star game series has been a virtual tie with the NL winning 43 games and the AL winning 42 games. However, the AL is on a roll not having lost the All-Star game since 2012. The All-Star game no longer decides who has home-field advantage in the World Series but with all the star power on the field, fans should be given a show.
