Javy Baez Will Lead Off for National League, Willson Contreras Batting Ninth
We got our first look at the starting lineups for tomorrow night’s All-Star Game, and there is a familiar name at the top for the National League. Manager Dave Roberts will go with El Mago to start things off for the NL against Chris Sale. The other starter from the Cubs, Willson Contreras, will catch and hit ninth.

Roberts on Javy at top: "I like Javy. I like the energy."

Here’s hoping Javy can channel his inner Kris Bryant and take Sale deep like we saw KB do in the 2016 spectacle.
