Dave Roberts expected to have six Dodger All-Stars. He was off by two.

Corey Seager, Clayton Kershaw, Kenley Jansen and Cody Bellinger have made the team. More surprisingly, Justin Turner and Alex Wood did not.

Seager lost the fan vote to Reds shortstop Zack Cozart. Kershaw will get the nod as starter, but his pitching schedule may scratch him from that honor.

Turner is one of the final five players eligible. In what’s become a popular trend of partnering with a team in the opposing league, the Dodgers and Royals are teaming up to get their respective third basemen in the game.

Wood’s snub isn’t a good look for baseball. He’s 9-0, with the lowest ERA and FIP among NL starters. He’s likely the first one called when the inevitability of a starter or two dropping out occurs.

Look out for Dodgers in the Futures Game, as well
