Second baseman Whit Merrifield and third baseman Hunter Dozier were the final two Kansas City Royals left in the ballots for the 2019 MLB All-Star game.

Neither were named starters when the rosters were announced on Thursday.

Instead, the New York Yankees' DJ LeMahieu and the Houston Astros' Alex Bregman will start at second and third, respectively.

Kansas City is not completely exempt from the game, though, as the MLB requires each team to have a representative at the All-Star game.

Dozier and Merrifield will find out on Sunday if they have been voted in as reserves. Pitchers will also be revealed on Sunday.

All-Star weekend begins on July 5 and runs through July 9 in Cleveland.

The MLB All-Star Celebrity softball game is on July 7 and the home run derby is on July 8.

The 2019 MLB All-Star game is on July 9 at 6:30 p.m.
