Anthony Rizzo Named Starter for Tuesday's All-Star Game

The National League lineup has been set for the annual MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday night, and Chicago baseball fans will see a familiar face as Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo will start the game.

Rizzo, who was selected as a reserve player along with rookie third baseman Kris Bryant last week, will bat sixth and fill the designated hitter role for the NL in the game. He is the first Cubs player to start an All-Star Game since Kosuke Fukudome and Geovany Soto started the 2008 contest at Yankee Stadium.

Here is the full National League lineup for the game:

1 Andrew McCutchen, CF

5 Buster Posey, C

6 Anthony Rizzo, DH
