The most likely 2013 MLB All-Stars are those best players in the MLB today from the National League and the American League projected to have the best chance of playing in the 2013 MLB All-Star Game. The annual event in 2013 will be played on July 16 at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, in New York City.

Unlike other professional sports all-star games, the MLB All-Star Game is meaningful to the league season as the winner of the game earns home field advantage at the following World Series. It also varies as the players who participate in the event are selected by various groups of people. Fans vote for the starting fielders, MLB managers select the pitchers and the reserve players are voted on by both the fans and the managers.

While who will play in the 2013 MLB All-Star Game will greatly depend on how the best players in professional baseball perform during the 2013 MLB season, there are a few who will likely make the game, save for an injury or total collapse. Top players like Jose Bautista, Josh Hamilton, Miguel Cabrera and Edwin Encarnacion are likely to see success in 2013, as they did in 2012, just as Justin Verlander, Matt Kemp and Joey Votto are.

No one can truly predict the exact 2013 MLB All-Star Game rosters but it's not impossible to think that some of these players might later be remembered as among the greatest baseball players of all time. Who do you think will play in the 2013 MLB All-Star Game? Vote below!
