The MLB All-Star Break has arrived and while we technically are about 62 percent through the season, the interruption in the schedule is always a good time to see which hitters and pitchers made our annual Fantasy Sports Boss Mid-Season All-Fantasy Team. Feel free to disagree below in the comments or tweet us @RotoBoss

Catchers (2):  J.T. Realmuto, Evan Gattis
Honorable Mention: Wilson Ramos, Yadier Molina
Notes:  It has been another rough year for the fantasy baseball catcher to say the least but these guys have held up their end of  things.  What is interesting is that half of them (Ramos, Gattis) came at very affordable draft prices this past spring.

First Baseman (2):  Jesus Aguilar, Freddie Freeman
Honorable Mention:  Paul Goldschmidt, Max Muncy
Notes:  The first thing that needs to be mentioned is the fact that Goldschmidt did a complete 180 once the calendar flipped to June.  Meanwhile BOTH Aguilar and Muncy have been among the greatest surprises of the season.

Second Baseman (2):  Javier Baez, Jose Altuve
Honorable Mention:  Scooter Gennett, Ozzie Albies
Notes:  This is the second season in a row Gennett makes his way here which is the same amount that Altuve made the list in that span.  That says something.  In terms of Baez and Albies; well the position is in good youthful hands going forward.

Shortstop (2):  Trevor Story, Francisco Lindor, Manny Machado
Honorable Mention:  Jean Segura
Notes:  There was no way to leave out anyone from Story, Lindor, or Machado from getting top billing so I made an exception to the two per infield position.  My piece and my rules.

Third Baseman (2):  Nolan Arenado, Jose Ramirez
Honorable Mention:  Alex Bregman, Matt Carpenter
Notes:  What Jose Ramirez is doing is beyond comprehension.

Outfield (5):  Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez, Mike Trout, Starling Marte, Andrew Benintendi
Honorable Mention:  Eddie Rosario, Charlie Blackmon, Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Michael Brantley
Notes:  It is almost unfair that the entire Boston outfield makes the top of the line.

Starting Pitching (10):  Jacob DeGrom, Max Scherzer, Chris Sale, Corey Kluber, Luis Severino, Justin Verlander, Gerrit Cole, Trevor Bauer, Ross Stripling, Aaron Nola
Honorable Mention:  Blake Snell, Zack Greinke, Miles Mikolas, Mike Foltynewicz, James Paxton, Charlie Morton, Jon Lester, Jose Berrios, Patrick Corbin, Tyler Skaggs
Notes:  It is amazing that 6 of the 10 who made the top line come from the AL which is tougher historically to pitch against due to the DH.
