MLB All-Star Game lineups: NL starting 9 includes trio of Rockies sluggers

USA TODAY Sports

One-third of the NL's starting lineup in the All-Star Game is made up of Rockies players.

The Colorado Rockies are heavily represented in the upcoming MLB All-Star Game at Citi Field in Queens, N.Y., boasting three players in the National League's starting lineup.

Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki were voted in as starters, so it's no surprise that the two young stars are part of the league's starting nine. However, it comes as at least a bit of a shock that a third Rockie, Michael Cuddyer, is also in the lineup as a result of being selected as the squad's starting designated hitter by NL manager Bruce Bochy.

Gonzalez will bat fifth and play left field, while Tulowitzki hits seventh and plays shortstop and Cuddyer follows him in the eighth spot.

It is worth noting that no other team in the NL West has even one starter in the Midsummer Classic. This marks the first time in Rockies history that three of the team's players were chosen to start in the All-Star Game.

Here are the full lineups:
