      National League manager Dave Roberts said that Christian Yelich (back) will start in left field and bat leadoff Tuesday in the All-Star Game, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.Though Yelich had to bow out of Monday's Home Run Derby on account of the back injury, his availability for the Midsummer Classic apparently won't be in peril, just as he predicted.
