Carlos Santana Elected To Start All-Star Game

Fans have voted Cleveland Indians first baseman Carlos Santana the American League starter at first base for the 2019 All-Star Game at Progressive Field.

I’m excited to represent Cleveland alongside the best in Major League Baseball,” said Santana. “To be able to start in my first career All-Star Game, and to do it at home in front of our fans, means everything to me.”

Santana ran away with the AL first base vote, claiming 49.2 percent of the vote ahead of Luke Voit (25.8 percent) and C.J. Cron (25.0 percent). Entering the day, he had the best 2019 numbers among AL first baseman finalists leading in average (.290) home runs (18), on-base pct. (.411), slugging pct. (.541) and OPS (.951).

Santana will be appearing on his first All-Star Game roster over his 10-year Major League career. He will be the first Cleveland Indians first baseman to start an All-Star Game since Jim Thome in 1999.
