The MLB All-Star Game is set to begin Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in Cleveland, with Nationals Max Scherzer and Anthony Rendon being named to the National League's roster.
One former National is missing from this list. Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper didn't make the team after being the star of last year's Home Run Derby.
But Harper's visage has made its way to Cleveland, emblazoned on banners that adorn the city.

It appears that MLB printed the posters with players they'd assume would be on the rosters before the official announcement was made on June 27.

Bryce Harper posters all over Cleveland. I guess they printed them before they found out he was not going to.. you know... be an all star. pic.twitter.com/Vbu4lOyqfe— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) July 8, 2019
One quick fix could be replacing the banners with Phillies' catcher J.T. Realmuto's face instead, but it might be too late.
