Fans had the chance to decide who would start the 2021 MLB All-Star Game

Now the rest of the rosters have been filled in as the reserves and pitchers were announced Sunday afternoon. 

The players who will complete the American and National League teams' 32-man rosters were chosen by player ballot and commissioner's office selection. These are the position players who will be on the bench and the 12 pitchers who will be on the staff.

Some starters and reserves may miss the game because of injury, and some pitchers, such as Jacob deGrom, won't pitch in the All-Star Game because their turn in the rotation next week will cause them to miss the Midsummer Classic. Replacements for injured players and unavailable pitchers will be selected by the leagues and announced prior to the game. Injured starters will be replaced by the All-Star managers (Kevin Cash and Dave Roberts), who will choose from the reserves the players voted in.
