There's an even dozen players from the Naturals team on the North squad including five starters -- second baseman Johnny Giavotella, third baseman Mike Moustakas, outfielders Paulo Orlando and Derek Robinson and designated hitter Clint Robinson.

The reserves include two pitchers, left-handers Mike Montgomery and Edgar Osuna, who won't play because they are recovering from injuries. But also on the team are left-hander Brandon Sisk, right-handers Louis Coleman and Mario Santiago, outfielder Tim Smith and infielder Chris McConnell.

Add their manager, hitting coach and trainer to the roster as well.

With that many all-stars, you probably already know they're the league leaders at the break.
