Major League Baseball officially announced the rosters for the 2018 All-Star Game set to take place at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. on July. 17.

While Jose Altuve, Freddie Freeman, and Max Scherzer were obvious selections for the Midsummer Classic thanks to tremendous first halves, there were some noticeable omissions from the lineups in both leagues.

Here are six gigantic snubs from MLB's All-Star Game.

The Big Maple won't be representing Canada or the Seattle Mariners at the Midsummer Classic despite tossing a no-hitter and anchoring one of MLB's most surprising teams' starting staff. Paxton is not only doing yeoman's work for Seattle (two complete games, 19 starts), but he's also striking out hitters at a career-high rate (11.7 SO/9). His 154 strikeouts are tied for fourth in the American League.

Stat shows how much Bryce Harper is struggling this season

  Stat shows how much Bryce Harper is struggling this season Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper will likely start for the National League in the 2018 MLB All Star Game, but thus far it has been a season he’d love to forget about. While Harper’s 21 home runs will help put him in the Home Run Derby, the 25-year-old has struggled to collect base hits. In fact, Harper’s 2018 struggles have already helped him blow past a previous mark from last season. According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, Washington’s All-Star outfielder has gone hitless in 39 of his 84 games this season. In 111 games last season, Harper finished with only 29 hitless games. Washington #Nats All-Star OF Bryce Harper has had 39 hitless games this season. He had 29 all of last season, per @BillyBall. — Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) July 5, 2018 As the All-Star Game approaches, Harper certainly might need the days off during the week to try and get back on track. His .215 batting average would be a career-worst mark and come at an awful time with free agency looming this offseason.

Turner is one of the most electric players in the game, as was demonstrated Thursday when he drove in eight RBIs against the Miami Marlins, tying an MLB record for most runs driven in during one game by a leadoff hitter. Despite being so valuable to his club, the 25-year-old won't be playing in front of his home crowd in Washington unless he earns enough love to win MLB's Final Vote.

Andrelton Simmons, Angels

Simmons is arguably the best defensive player in baseball, but he's not all glove. The 28-year-old is hitting for a career-high .312 average and .815 OPS, while getting on-base at a .373 clip. He's also struck out just 15 times in 292 at-bats. But, once again, Simba gets no All-Star honor, despite owning the eighth-highest WAR in MLB. He, like Turner, still has a shot at a nod via the Final Vote.

Forget the All - Star Game . He might be focusing on the AL Cy Young Award conversation. One caveat: He is among the five players vying for the National League' s Camping World MLB All - Star Final Vote , so he could still be elected.

Jed Lowrie, Athletics

One player who continues to be overlooked is on the verge of bettering his impressive season from a year ago. Lowrie has 100 hits (42 of the extra-base variety) and could surpass his 49 doubles from 2017 when he put fans in Oakland on notice. But Lowrie, who has never appeared in an All-Star Game, won't be given any kind of shot this season despite being one of the leaders on a surprisingly good Oakland Athletics team.

Blake Snell, Rays

How in the world does a pitcher lead his league in ERA and sit among MLB's leaders in opponent's batting average, WHIP, starts, and strikeouts get so overlooked for an All-Star appearance? Snell may get overshadowed by the Verlanders and Klubers of the AL while pitching his games in front of dreary audiences in Tampa, but this kid is good and should be pitching in the Midsummer Classic.

Max Muncy, Dodgers

Muncy may not be qualified as a hitter, but come on. This guy reached the 20-home run mark quicker than any other player in Dodgers history - a franchise that's boasted legends like Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese, Duke Snider, and Gil Hodges. Muncy has been invaluable to the Dodgers, who wouldn't be near the top of the NL West standings without his out-of-nowhere campaign. He looks like the early favorite to win the Final Vote in the NL, but that shouldn't have been necessary in the first place.

Alex Bregman Wins All-Star Game MVP Award .
Alex Bregman Wins All-Star Game MVP Award​Alex Bregman, who combined with teammate George Springer to give the AL a three-run advantage in the tenth inning, was awarded with the trophy. Bregman's 1-for-3 stat-line doesn't appear impressive from the outset, but his home run in a pressure-packed situation speaks as to why the ​Astros view him in such high regard.
