Of course, the Dodgers will have 5 players representing the team in the All-Star game, plus manager Dave Roberts will be piloting the National league squad.
Cody Bellinger will be starting in the outfield for the NL squad — possibly in center field — and Hyun-Jin Ryu will be on the bump to open the exhibition. Ryu is joined by Walker Buehler and Clayton Kershaw for the NL. Max Muncy was added after Washington’s Anthony Rendon bowed out of the game.
The other two members representing the ball club during the week’s festivities are Joc Pederson, who is participating in Monday’s home run derby, and his HRD pitcher, third base coach Dino Ebel. Both do not receive NL jerseys for the derby.
Congratulations to all Dodgers representatives heading to Cleveland!
