Milwaukee - The Brewers didn't have a starter named to the 2018 All-Star team despite having the best record in the National League (54-36). Outfielders Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich will join reliever Josh Hader as reserves on the NL squad.
Cain's batting .290 with a .394 on-base percentage while hitting lead-off for most of his 73 games. Yelich has a .285 average, 11 homers, and he's considered one of the most reliable outfielders in the league.
Hader has 83 strikeouts in 44.2 innings this season. He leads the majors with 16.72 strikeouts per nine innings.
One of the biggest surprises was the exclusion of Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar. The 28-year-old is tied for the NL lead with 22 homers (Nolan Arenado). He's also batting .306 with 63 RBIs. But Aguilar still has a chance to sneak in the mid-summer classic. Fans have until 3 P.M. Wednesday to take part in the "Final Vote" at MLB.com to see if Aguilar can get enough votes to qualify. Brandon Belt (Giants), Matt Carpenter (Cardinals), Max Muncy (Dodgers), and Trae Turner (Nationals) are also in the Final Vote competition.
The 2018 MLB All-Star Game will be held at Nationals Park, Tuesday, July 17th on Fox (7 P.M.).
