The 2015 Major League Baseball All-Star Game rosters are now complete.

Pitchers and reserve position players for the American and National Leagues were announced earlier this evening.

Just one position player with the St. Louis Cardinals will join teammates Jhonny Peralta and Matt Holliday at the festivities on July 14. That player is none other than Yadier Molina, who will be making his 7th ASG appearance.

Two Redbird pitchers, Michael Wacha and Trevor Rosenthal, will make their first trips to the Game.

Not all of the possible Redbird candidates were named to the team on Monday night. Second baseman Kolten Wong and third baseman Matt Carpenter were left off of the roster. Carpenter had previously been named to the National League roster each of the last two seasons.

One other note: Seattle's Nelson Cruz will start at DH for the American League in the game, while the DH for the NL has not been determined at this time. Giants manager Bruce Bochy, the manager for the NL, will make that decision at some point before the game.

Cardinal Carlos Martinez is one of five Final Vote candidates for the National League. The other four are Johnny Cueto, Clayton Kershaw, Carlos Gonzalez and Mets right-handed reliever Jeurys Familia.
