Major League Baseball announced their starters on Sunday night for the 2017 All-Star game in Miami, Florida and no Chicago Cubs will be starting for the National League. Last season during the Cubs impressive first half, the Cubs had the four infield members and five total voted in the 2016 All-Star game.

The Cubs are the first team to have a four starter dropoff in the All-Star Game since the San Diego Padres (1985-86) according to ESPN Stats and Info.

In the outfield votes, Jason Heyward was fourth, Ben Zobrist was fifth, and Kyle Schwarber finished eighth in the voting despite currently playing in the minors.

At the catcher position, Buster Posey won in a landslide with 3.3 million votes with Cubs young catcher Willson Contreras finishing second with 1.5 million.

Cubs closer Wade Davis will be the lone Cubs player that made the cut for the 2017 All-Star game. It will be his third All-Star selection and first in the National League. Also, Cubs manager Joe Maddon will be managing the All-Star game for the second time in his career.
