The 2022 MLB All-Star rosters have been announced with 33 players representing each league for the July 19 game at Dodger Stadium.

Aaron Judge and Ronald Acuna Jr. were among those already named as starters after a fan vote that selected one player at each position in each league. Veterans Albert Pujols and Miguel Cabrera were also added to the roster as legacy picks.

The remaining players were announced Sunday based on the combined input from a player ballot and the Commissioner's Office.

The final results featured some surprises, but it's overall a deserving list of participants for the Midsummer Classic.

The reserve list featured some obvious selections that narrowly missed out on getting voted in as starters.

Nolan Arenado couldn't beat out fellow third base finalist Manny Machado, but the St. Louis Cardinals star is more than deserving of his seventh All-Star selection. Arenado entered Sunday ranked second in the majors with 4.7 wins above replacement, per Baseball Reference, trailing only teammate Paul Goldschmidt.

After winning nine straight Gold Glove awards, Arenado is on pace for another while continuing to produce at a high level at the plate.

Kyle Schwarber has also impressed at the dish with his National League-leading 28 home runs.

Miami Marlins starter Sandy Alcantara stands out among the pitchers after lowering his ERA to 1.73 following Sunday's matchup with the New York Mets. It was his 12th straight start of at least seven innings pitched.

In the American League, Jose Ramirez has had an MVP-quality season with a .958 OPS entering Sunday and a league-leading 66 RBI.

Yordan Alvarez has been a key part of the Houston Astros' success, entering the day with a .306 average, 26 home runs and 60 RBI. His .653 slugging percentage leads the majors, even topping the red-hot Judge.

After winning ALCS MVP a year ago, Alvarez earned his first All-Star selection.

There were also some quality players left off the list who will need an injury replacement to get a ticket to Los Angeles.

Jeff Passan @JeffPassan

Ty France was robbed.

Stacie Wheeler @StacieMWheeler

Will Smith is the best catcher in MLB and rightfully deserves to be an All-Star. I know it doesn't matter, but that snub triggers me.

John P. Lopez @LopezOnSports

Ryne Stanek has been just about perfect in a thankless job. And the All Star snub only confirms just how thankless it is.

Tim Kelly @TimKellySports

It would appear that neither Zack Wheeler or Aaron Nola has been picked for the All-Star team. Frankly, that's shocking.

There are still a limited number of spots available, and only the best can represent each league at the upcoming exhibition.
