With Lexington in 2010, Jose Altuve batted.308 with 11 home runs and 45 RBIs in 94 games before being promoted.

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Blake Snell was one of the biggest All-Star Game snubs in the history of the event, and Major League Baseball could take a step toward avoiding similarly embarrassing oversights in the future.

The 89th MLB All-Star Game will be played on Tuesday, July 17 at Nationals Park in Washington, DC.

Astros Manager AJ Hinch will become just the second skipper in franchise history to manage an All-Star Game, joining Phil Garner, who guided the 2006 NL All-Star team. This process also helps drown out skeptics who say All-Star selections are "popularity contests" rather than merit based. We take a look at some of the top players who will be taking part in this star studded match.

The American Leagues best second baseman is Jose Altuve.

NeNe Leakes Clarifies Comment On Kylie Jenner's Forbes Cover After Dropping Shade
The online dictionary's Twitter account even went as far as to give the link for the online definition of the word "self-made". So Kylie Jenner made Forbes and there's been so much talk about it, from if she's really "self- made" to doubts and much more.

Before the American League and National League play the Midsummer Classic, the rosters have to be staffed. Bregman will be making his All-Star debut.

Major League Baseball announced the All-Star rosters Sunday night with the Astros, Red Sox and Indians leading the way with five players each.

Some notable National League reserves include: Buster Posey (catcher, San Francisco Giants), Paul Goldschmidt (first baseman, Arizona Diamondbacks), Joey Votto (first baseman, Cincinnati Reds), Max Scherzer (starting pitcher, Washington Nationals) and Jacob DeGrom (starting pitcher, New York Mets). In 44 appearances, the 23-year-old righty has thrown 41.0 innings and sports a 4-1 record with a 2.85 ERA. It's important to note that he's not Detroit's closer, either, and is instead a setup man.

The Minor League Baseball Umpires who will work the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game are Malachi Moore (home plate) of the Texas League, who is a product of the umpiring program at the MLB Youth Academy in Compton, California; Venezuelan native Edwin Moscoso (first base) of the Southern League; Kyle McCrady (second base) of the Texas League; and John Mang (third base) of the Eastern League.
