At 8 p.m. EDT, the MLB announced the victor of its Final Vote competition, the last chance for an unsung hero or fan favorite player to be voted into the 2018 MLB All-Star Game. Joining Altuve are third baseman Alex Bregman, outfielder George Springer, and pitchers Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander. Hinch will be joined by his entire 2018 coaching staff, as well as Rich Dauer, who served as the Astros first base coach from 2015-17 before retiring.

The Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs lead the National League's roster with two starters apiece. Red Sox designated hitter J.D. Martinez was voted into the same role for the All-Star Game.

Players can choose not to participate in the All-Star game for various reasons, such as if they are injured or pitched in a regular season game in the days before. This will mark his fourth consecutive fan-elected start and sixth overall All-Star selection.
