The All-Star Game is one of the most exciting nights of the year for baseball fans. The contest showcases the best talent that the American League and National League have to offer, going head-to-head for bragging rights.

Alexis Diaz was the lone representative selected from the first-place Cincinnati Reds. While others, including rookies Matt McLain and Spencer Steer, were surely in the running, in the end, Diaz will be the team's only participant.

However, there will be some familiar faces at T-Mobile Park in Seattle when the All-Star Game gets underway next week. Which former Cincinnati Reds players are gearing up to make their presence felt in the 2023 All-Star Game.

Which former Reds players will be on the field for this year's All-Star Game?

A total of six former Cincinnati Reds will be on the field for the All-Star festivities next Tuesday, with four of the six suiting up for the American League. But, one of the more beloved Reds players from the past five years will join Alexis Diaz as part of the National League squad.

Nick Castellanos, who was part of back-to-back winning seasons with the Reds, has put together a solid season so far, batting .316 with 11 home runs, and 52 RBIs on the Philadelphia Phillies.

A former prospect that many Reds fans may forget is Josiah Gray. The right-hander was drafted by Cincinnati in 2018 but was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers before making his major league debut. In the 2023 season, Gray has been a bright spot for the Washington Nationals. Gray is 6-6, with 86 strikeouts and a 3.30 ERA.

Former Cincinnati Reds starter Luis Castillo will also be at the game, which is being held at his home park. Castillo was traded to the Mariners for a prospect package last summer that included Noelvi Marte and Edwin Arroyo. In typical Castillo fashion, La Piedra has 108 strikeouts on the season.

An All-Star for the third-time, Sonny Gray will be in attendance at the 2023 All-Star Game. Gray has pitched well this year, going 4-2 in 16 games with 89 punch outs.

Kevin Gausman, who played briefly for the Cincinnati Reds in 2018, will represent the Toronto Blue Jays. Gausman has racked up 139 strikeouts in 17 games as a member of the Jays starting rotation.

The Detroit Tigers had to send somebody, and that somebody is former Reds reliever Michael Lorenzen. Despite missing the early-part of the 2023 season, Lorenzen represents the best Detroit has to offer.

The Cincinnati Reds current roster, despite leading the NL Central, may not be well-represented in the All-Star Game. But there's plenty of former Reds players for the Cincinnati faithful to cheer for.
