Russell Martin and Jose Bautista will be joining Toronto Blue Jays teammate Josh Donaldson as reserve players on the American League roster at the July 14 major league all-star game in Cincinnati.

Donaldson will start the game at third base after receiving the most votes of any player at 14,090,188.

Bautista will be making his sixth appearance at the all-star game after a strong first half patrolling right field for the Jays. He is fourth among AL players and first among outfielders with a .397 on-base percentage.

The 34-year-old has also walked 65 times, 10 more than any other player in the AL, and 23 more than any other outfielder. 

Bautista's 57 runs batted in also rank second in the AL, two behind fellow all-star Mark Teixeira of the New York Yankees.

Martin, who signed with the Jays last off-season, has been a big upgrade at the catcher position offensively and defensively. The Montreal native is also the lone Canadian named to the Midsummer Classic. 

The 29-year-old has 12 home runs and 39 RBIs,good for third at his position in the AL. However, his .345 OBP and .476 slugging percentage are second for catchers. 

This will be the fourth appearance in the all-star game for Martin, who has previously played for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Los Angeles Dodgers and Yankees. 

Martin and Bautista have been a major part of a potent Blue Jays lineup, which had scored 81 more runs than any other team in the majors entering play Monday.
