All-Star Game 2011: Lineups, Rosters, TV Information

Home Run Derby champion Robinson Cano gets to hit eighth in the American League lineup posted by manager Ron Washington of the Texas Rangers. Eighth? What on earth was Washington thinking?

Washington, of course, had to post the AL lineup prior to Monday night's record-setting display by Cano, in which he hit 12 final-round home runs and 32 overall to outlast Boston's Adrian Gonzalez. In retrospect, though, you would think Washington might like a do-over.

Here is the American League lineup:

Curtis Granderson CF, Asdrubal Cabrera SS, Adrian Gonzalez 1B, Jose Bautista RF, Josh Hamilton LF, Adrian Beltre 3B, David Ortiz DH, Robinson Cano 2B, Alex Avila C

Jered Weaver will start on the mound for the American League.

Here is the National League lineup:

Rickie Weeks 2B, Carlos Beltran DH, Matt Kemp CF, Prince Fielder 1B, Brian McCann C, Lance Berkman RF, Matt Holliday LF, Troy Tulowitzki SS, Scott Rolen 3B

Roy Halladay will be the starting pitcher for the National League.

For the Yankees, catcher Russell Martin will be a reserve and relief pitcher David Robertson will be in the bullpen. Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez were named starters, but declined invitations, Jeter due to exhaustion and Rodrigueuz due to knee surgery. CC Sabathia also declined an invitation, as did closer Mariano Rivera.

For the Mets Beltran will be their only representative. Shortstop Jose Reyes was voted as a starter, but is on the disabled list with a hamstring injury. (Full rosters)

The game will be broadcast on FOX at 8 p.m. ET.
