After a full month of voting updates, we learn about the lineups for the 2016 MLB All-Star Game. More than that, we’ll be learning the entire roster of both teams. The reveal will be airing at 7:00 on ESPN.

Predictions have had very little deviation from the voting updates, aside from the possibility of Buster Posey starting for the NL after an update was announced. The interesting things to look out for other than that are going to include which pitchers in the NL’s incredible group of aces makes it, as well as who the likely lone candidates for teams like the Phillies, Braves, Reds, and Twins will be.

Anticipate starting lineups that showcase a lot from a single team. The NL, for example, is expected to have a Cubs heavy lineup, likely with 5 Cubs starters. The AL’s starting lineup is most likely going to have 3 or 4 Red Sox players in it, a testament to their incredible offensive prowess this season.

There’s a lot of exciting young talent that can be showcased at this (Corey Seager, Francisco Lindor), as well as veterans having comeback seasons that can be rewarded with another trip (Carlos Beltran). It’s going to be an exciting reveal. So who makes it?
