Reigning NL MVP Christian Yelich will have plenty of company in Cleveland for the MLB All-Star game.

Yelich will be one of four Milwaukee Brewers players representing their ball club, with catcher Yasmani Grandal, infielder Mike Moustakas and left-handed reliever Josh Hader all named to the NL squad Sunday evening. Moustakas and Grandal are listed as reserves.

Grandal and Hader are both making their second career All-Star appearances. For Grandal, he’s returning to the game for the first time since representing the LA Dodgers in 2015. Meanwhile, Hader was one of a franchise-record five Brewers in the game last year. He has not allowed a run or a hit in eight straight appearances.

Meanwhile, Yelich will partake in the Home Run Derby. The MLB All-Star game is scheduled for July 9 at 6:30 pm CT.
