MLB All-Star Game Rosters: Five Red Sox Headed To Mid-Summer Classic

The Boston Red Sox arguably have been the best team in Major League Baseball through the first half of the 2018 season. As such, they’ll be well-represented at this year’s All-Star Game in Washington D.C.

Boston will send five players to the Mid-Summer Classic. Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez were named starters for the American League squad, while Chris Sale and Craig Kimbrel were among pitchers selected.
