Gerrit Cole, the New York Yankees ace, has been selected to start the MLB All-Star Game for the first time in his career. The game will take place at T-Mobile Park, and Cole will face off against Zac Gallen of the Arizona Diamondbacks, who will be making his first All-Star appearance.

Despite several players being absent due to injuries and other reasons, the lineups and starting pitchers showcase the immense talent in today’s game. The National League lineup will be led by NL MVP favorite Ronald Acuna Jr., followed by Freddie Freeman, Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez, Nolan Arenado, Luis Arraez, Sean Murphy, Corbin Carroll, and Orlando Arcia.

On the other hand, the American League lineup features Shohei Ohtani, the game’s biggest star, who will bat second behind leadoff hitter Marcus Semien but will not pitch due to a blister on his finger. Other notable players in the lineup include Randy Arozarena, Yandy Diaz, Corey Seager, Austin Hays, Adolis Garcia, Josh Jung, and Jonah Heim.

Gerrit Cole expressed his gratitude for being selected and stated that starting the All-Star Game has always been his personal goal. Although the game no longer determines home-field advantage in the World Series, Cole is honored to take on the role. The American League team has been dominant recently, with their last All-Star Game loss occurring in 2012. The MLB All-Star Game will showcase Gerrit Cole as the starting pitcher.
