Carlos Correa exits Astros game after slide at home

Carlos Correa exits Astros game after slide at home

The rosters for the 2017 MLB All Star Game were announced Sunday, which included five Houston Astros and (so far) one Texas Ranger.

The 2017 MLB All-Star Game will be played on Tuesday, July 11 at Marlins Park in Miami, Florida.

The Astros drafted Correa with the No. 1 overall pick back in 2012, when they were in the midst of an terrible rebuild that saw them finish in last place three consecutive times.

The Los Angeles Dodgers, who have the best record in the National League, will not have any All-Star starters.

Last year's senior selection for the All-Star game was the Tigers' Miguel Cabrera which was his eleventh trip, but this season he was not even selected after playing in every midsummer classic since 2009.

Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa was taken out of the game against the Atlanta Braves after sliding head first at the plate in the fourth inning. Second baseman Jose Altuve was elected to his third start.

Correa said that from the time you are a young kid you dream about playing in the All-Star Game at this level.

Houston pitchers Dallas Keuchel and Lance McCullers Jr. were picked, as well, giving the Astros five All-Stars, tied for the most with the New York Yankees, Cleveland and Washington. Keuchel is injured and will not play. Washington first baseman Ryan Zimmerman, second baseman Daniel Murphy and outfielder Bryce Harper, who led all players in votes, each got the starting nod from fans. The NL pitching staff will have two Nationals' in Stephen Strasburg and Max Scherzer.

New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge was the top vote-getter in the American League.
