The American League roster for the 2023 MLB All-Star Game is officially set. We learned who would start for the Junior Circuit after voting closed for good on Thursday night, and on Sunday, the league announced the pitchers and reserves.

Los Angeles Angels DH/P Shohei Ohtani was the top vote-getter in the AL at 2,646,307 and had already earned an automatic spot at the Midsummer Classic, but now the two-way phenom has also been named to the pitching staff as well. The Texas Rangers continue to lead all teams with six representatives, adding reserve outfielder Adolis Garcia and pitcher Nathan Eovaldi to their impressive haul. Both the Toronto Blue Jays (who saw Bo Bichette, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Whit Merrifield all named as reserves in addition to pitcher Kevin Gausman) and Tampa Bay Rays (thanks to ace Shane McClanahan) are close behind with four apiece. With Aaron Judge still on the IL, pitcher Gerrit Cole will be the New York Yankees’ lone representative in Seattle, while closer Kenley Jansen was the only Red Sox to make the squad.

The 2023 All-Star Game game is set for Tuesday, July 11 at 8:00 p.m. ET and will take place at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington, home of the Seattle Mariners. Here is the full roster for the American League.
