Farrell in our pre game meeting said two ABs for Jeter and out likely top 4. He will send him out on defense then have Ramirez take him out.

So that's two standing ovations. Should be interesting to see Jeter's reaction. He's been playing it cool while in Minnesota, claiming it's just like any other All-Star game. We all know that's a big fat lie. Jeter has to be feeling something...
Here are the lineups:
NATIONAL LEAGUE CF Andrew McCutchen, Pirates RF Yasiel Puig, Dodgers SS Troy Tulowitzki, Rockies 1B Paul Goldschmidt, Diamondbacks DH Giancarlo Stanton, Marlins 3B Aramis Ramirez, Brewers 2B Chase Utley, Phillies C Jonathan Lucroy, Brewers LF Carlos Gomez, Brewers
AMERICAN LEAGUE SS Derek Jeter, Yankees LF Mike Trout, Angels 2B Robinson Cano, Mariners 1B Miguel Cabrera, Tigers RF Jose Bautista, Blue Jays DH Nelson Cruz, Orioles CF Adam Jones, Orioles 3B Josh Donaldson, Athletics C Salvador Perez, Royals
Hopefully the game will be a little more exciting than the Home Run Derby.
