The rosters for the 2016 MLB All-Star Game have been revealed and with one final vote for the NL and AL left, there will be a few players left off the team who should have made it. While players like Starling Marte, Trevor Story, Dustin Pedroia and George Springer still have a shot at the final vote, the other players on this list were completely snubbed.

1. Starling Marte

Batting .320 with 31 RBIs and 25 stolen bases, the fact that the Pittsburg Pirates' Starling Marte is not starting is a travesty.

2. Trevor Story

Along with the rest of the Chicago Cubs infield, Addison Russell was named a starter, but it's Rockies rookie Trevor Story who should be starting, and he has the numbers to back it up.

3. Gregory Polanco

Just like his teammate Starling Marte, Polanco should have also been named to the team. The outfielder is batting .297 with 50 RBIs and 12 HRs.

4. Kyle Hendricks

While his record isn't great (7-6), Hendricks has the seventh best ERA in the National League.

5. Christian Yelich

When it comes to the Miami Marlins, Giancarlo Stanton is the star, but outfielder Christian Yelich is putting up great numbers. Yelich is batting .313 with 42 RBIs and a .395 OBP.

6. George Springer

His batting average (.265) may have held him back but the young Astros player still has 19 HR and 50 RBIs.

7. Dustin Pedroia

Players such as Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley Jr. are getting all the spotlight in Boston, but the Red Sox veteran is quietly having a great season. Pedroia is batting .308 with 8 HRs and 34 RBIs.

8. Aaron Sanchez

With AL manager Ned Yost opting for a roster full of relief pitchers, Aaron Sanchez got the short end of the stick. Sanchez has a 9-1 record with a 2.95 ERA.

9. Carlos Correra

One of baseball's rising stars has been left out of the All-Star game. While his batting average is a low .262, Correra does 13 HRs with 51 RBIs and 8 SBs.
