Both Los Angeles baseball teams will have at least one starter in the 2014 MLB All-Star Game, after the league announces its All-Star rosters on Sunday.

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was named a starting outfielder on the National League team — marking his first All-Star nod — and he’ll be joined by a pair of Dodger pitchers in Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke. Dodgers infielder Dee Gordon was voted as a reserve NL player.

For the L.A. Angels, outfielder Mike Trout was tabbed as an American League starter with Angels pitcher Garrett Richards getting pegged as an MLB.com Final Vote candidate.

If Richards is the top vote-getter of the five AL candidates, he’ll make the roster. The winner of that final spot will be announced after voting concludes at 1 p.m. Pacific Time on Thursday.

Last year, Puig was one of the Final Vote candidates for the NL team, but he was beat out by Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman.

While both Puig and Gordon are first-time All-Stars, this marks a fourth consecutive All-Star selection for Kershaw, the reigning NL Cy Young Award winner. It’s Greinke’s second all-time selection and his first since 2009.

It’s also the third straight year Trout will play for the AL All-Star team, while teammate Richards is vying for his first appearance in the Mid-Summer Classic.

The starting pitchers and batting orders will be announced by the managers of each team the day before the 85th All-Star Game on July 15 at Target Field in Minneapolis.

John Farrell of the Boston Red Sox will manage the AL team and Mike Matheny of the St. Louis Cardinals is managing the NL.

The winner of the game will receive home-field advantage in the World Series.
