Lindor has played very well so far this fall. He currently sports a .263/.300/.404 slash line, while chipping in a homer, four RBI and three doubles in 13 games. He also leads the team with seven runs scored and is tied for second in stolen bases with two. “It’s definitely a big honor. I’m happy to be here and I’m excited to be in that game,” Lindor said. “The competition is great. There’s a great bunch of players out here, and we all like to compete. I just can’t wait to go out there and play with the best out here and just have fun.”

Maronde has had a little bit more of a roller coaster fall season. His stats certainly don’t jump off the page: 0-1, 12.91 ERA, 17 H, 11 ER and 4 strikeouts in 7.2 innings. He’ll look to prove he can compete with the best talent Arizona has to offer out of the bullpen on Saturday.

Other marquee names that will be playing in the game are Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton, Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley, Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager, Pittsburgh Pirates first baseman Josh Bell and Cincinnati Reds outfielder Jesse Winker. The game begins at 5 PM and can be seen on MLB Network. Full rosters can be viewed here.
