July 11 (UPI) -- A league-high six players will represent the New York Yankees in the 2022 All-Star Game, MLB announced.

The league announced all 66 players for the full American League and National League rosters Sunday on ESPN. The All-Star Game will be played July 19 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.


Yankees outfielders Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton will start for the American League starters. Fellow Yankees Nestor Cortes and Gerrit Cole made the team as starting pitchers.

Yankees pitcher Clay Holmes made the team as a reliever. Yankees catcher Jose Trevino was a reserve selection.

The Los Angeles Dodgers, Toronto Blue Jays and Los Angeles Angels are tied with the Yankees with a league-best two starters apiece. Angels phenom Shohei Ohtani made the team for the second time as a starting pitcher and starting designated hitter.


The Houston Astros totaled the second-most selections, with five players on the American League side. The Dodgers, Blue Jays, St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets each totaled four selections.

Fan-selected starting lineups were revealed Friday. Pitchers and reserves were announced Sunday to round out the rosters. Those rosters feature 30 first-time All-Stars.

Reigning National League MVP Bryce Harper was selected as a starting designated hitter, but won't play due to injury. Players elected William Contreras of the Atlanta Braves to replace the Philadelphia Phillies slugger.

Contreras and his brother, Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras, will start for the National League. They will be the first set of brothers to start an All-Star Game since 1992, when Roberto Alomar and Sandy Alomar Jr. started for the American League.

The game's two starting pitchers will be announced later. The Home Run Derby will air at 8 p.m. July 18 on ESPN.

The MLB All-Star Game will air at 7:30 p.m. EDT July 19 on Fox.
