The All-Star rosters will be announced today, at 9 a.m. on TBS. The Dodgers in question are:

Andre Ethier: likely to be starting in right field. The last Dodger outfielder to start an All-Star Game was Reggie Smith in 1980. Darryl Strawberry was elected to start in 1991, but was injured and did not play.

Jonathan Broxton: should be a lock for the bullpen

Rafael Furcal: has only played in 50 of 80 games, but he is hitting a robust .338/.384/.500 and should beat out Jose Reyes, et al, for the backup spot behing Hanley Ramirez

Hong-Chih Kuo: history isn't kind to setup men, but he has a 1.11 ERA while striking out over 11 men per nine innings

Clayton Kershaw: he's 8-4 with a 3.02 ERA, but the NL is stacked with starters
