The American League and National league will square off in the 2015 MLB All-Star Game Tuesday night in Cincinnati, with home-field advantage in the World Series on the line. And if the matchup is like every other year, chances are we’ll see lots of lineup and pitching changes from inning to inning.

Luckily for the managers, the Kansas City Royals’ Ned Yost and the San Francisco Giants’ Bruce Bochy, both have rich and deep benches to pull out a victory.

Both managers also had to name some replacements for injured players. Bochy just tabbed Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw to fill in for the Nationals' Max Scherzer, who pitched on Sunday and opted not to play. Also Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun returns to the festivities for the sixth time in his career as the fill-in for injured St. Louis outfielder Matt Holliday. However, Dodgers rookie centerfielder Joc Pederson will be in the starting lineup for Holliday.

Rounding out the NL roster, Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was named the sub for Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon after he dislocated his thumb on Saturday. But Colorado’s DJ LeMahieu jumps into the starting lineup for Gordon. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen is expected to start for injured Marlin Giancarlo Stanton.

In the AL, due to Royals left fielder Alex Gordon’s groin injury, Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner steps onto the roster with Baltimore’s Adam Jones getting the starting nod. Minnesota second baseman Brian Dozier was named to the reserves after Toronto third baseman Jose Bautista deals with a shoulder injury.

Lastly, Angels pitcher Hector Santiago takes the place of Oakland’s Sonny Gray, who chose to sit after wrapping up a complete game shutout on Sunday. Also, Angels first baseman Albert Pujols makes his return to the All-Star Game as the sub for injured Tiger Miguel Cabrera.

Below are the full rosters for both squads, complete with injured players and their replacements. As a note, (*) dictates an injury or a player who decided to sit out, and (+) denotes a replacement player.
