nounced Monday and the battle should have fans salivating.For the second straight year , Boston Red Sox star Chris Sale will represent the American League while Max Scherzer of the Washington Nationals takes the ball for the National League, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports.Scherzer will get a chance to pitch in front of his home fans in Tuesday's game, which will take place at Nationals Park.Jayson Stark of the Athletic noted the rarity of the pitcher's accomplishment:Jayson Stark jaysonstMax Scherzer, your NL starter, will be the first reigning Cy Young to start an ASG in his home park. Pretty cool feat.The three-time Cy Young award winner also started the All-Star Game last season, although he had a lot of competition for the honor this time around. New York Mets starter Jacob deGrom leads all pitchers with a 1.68 ERA while Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Aaron Nola is a top candidate with his 12-3 record.Still, Scherzer is plenty deserving while finishing the first half of the year with a 12-5 record, 2.41 ERA and a league-leading 182 strikeouts.Meanwhile, Sale also enters rare territory as the AL starter for the third straight season:MLB Stat of the Day MLBStatoftheDayChris Sale is the first pitcher to start the #AllStarGame for three straight seasons since Robin Roberts (1953-55). 4QzEtD9ysRThe Red Sox lefty leads the majors with 188 strikeouts and his 2.23 ERA is the best in the American League.Justin Verlander has also had an outstanding season for the Houston Astros but he pitched Sunday and the other top options simply haven't matched what Sale has done in 2018.

With that in mind, we’ll spend this week looking at the rest of the competition in the division, going in reverse order of last year’s standings. Then Carl Yastrzemski Jersey , on Friday we’ll take a broader look at the rest of the American League. Today, we start with the Orioles.ProjectionsFangraphs Depth Charts: 63-99PECOTA: 57-105The LineupThe Orioles, as you can see from those projections above, are not expected to be very good at the whole playing baseball thing in 2019. That’s not super surprising considering they were historically bad in 2018, winning only 47 games. The lineup does have some names we’ll recognize, which is about the biggest compliment that can be paid. Chris Davis is probably still the biggest name here, but at this point he’s known more for his player-friendly contract and subpar production. He’ll still run into a home run here and there, but that’s about it. Oh, and Roster Resource still projects him to hit cleanup in this lineup. Yikes.There are some intriguing young players on the roster, though, my favorite of which is probably Cedric Mullins. The center fielder came up and made his debut last season and showed why he has so much promise. There are still certainly adjustments to be made against major-league pitching, but he will put the ball in play Ted Williams Jersey , draw some walks and potentially show off sneaky power. He’s also a good athlete who can make an impact with his legs. Mullins is likely to hit leadoff. Jonathan Villar isn’t quite as young, but he’s had a rollercoaster of a career and at the very least he will be a threat to steal at any point he reaches base. Trey Mancini and Mark Trumbo provide some right-handed pop in the middle of the lineup, Chance Sisco gives them a little upside behind the plate and they have two Rule 5 shortstops in Richie Martin and Drew Jackson. On top of all that, three of their top prospects — Ryan Mountcastle, Yusniel Diaz and Austin Hays — all could see the majors at some point this year. Yusniel DiazKim Klement-USA TODAY SportsAll in all, Baltimore is probably still going to be one of the worst offensive teams in all of baseball in the coming year. They are relying mostly on players whose floors are lower than their ceilings are high. It’s no secret that Baltimore is building for the future, and the best-case scenario for them is the young guys (particularly the prospects) getting some positive experience in the majors and one of the Rule 5 picks panning out. The RotationThe lineup is bad, but the rotation might actually be worse and doesn’t really have the potential upside that theoretically exists with some of the bats. Their most intriguing pitcher is still Dylan Bundy, as has been the case for what seems like 20 years. Bundy still shows flashes of his former promise, but at this point it feels like it’s time to give up on those dreams. Instead, the best bet for their top pitcher is Alex Cobb. The righty is solid enough and his numbers from 2018 make him look worse than he is. Cobb, if you’ll recall , signed very late in spring training, which helps explain his slow start. Something around league-average is a reasonable expectation for him. After Cobb and Bundy, it’s Andrew Cashner, who was abysmal last season, followed by David Hess and Mike Wright. Maybe they can get some solid starts from their top two, but that bottom three in this rotation is rough.The BullpenObviously comparing the bullpen of a World Series contender like the Red Sox and that of perhaps the worst team in baseball is a dumb comparison but, well, this should make some people feel better. Baltimore is actually somewhat solid up top, with Mychal Givens and Richard Bleier as their top two arms. The former has always had big swing-and-miss stuff, but we’re still waiting for the entire package to be put together. Bleier, meanwhile, is a command/control lefty who has a 1.97 ERA in 119 career innings Nomar Garciaparra Jersey , though he’s also coming off a major lat injury. After that, though, it’s a mix of lottery tickets like Miguel Castro, Tanner Scott, Pedro Araujo plus a swingman in Nate Karns. Baltimore isn’t going to be leading a whole lot of games late, but even when they are the bullpen is poised to blow a good chunk of those leads.OverallThe Red Sox went 16-3 against the Orioles last year, and should have a similarly easy time with them in 2019. Obviously baseball is weird and sometimes matchups don’t work out how you expect, but there isn’t any aspect of their roster than is even close to average. The Orioles are committed to a long rebuild, and it may well produce in the long run, but right now they are about as low as a team can go.
