Matt Harvey will be the National League's starting pitcher in Tuesday night's All-Star Game at Citi Field, according to a source.

The Mets' ace is 7-2 with a 2.35 ERA and 147 strikeouts in 19 starts this season.

National League manager Bruce Bochy will formally announce Harvey as his starter later on Monday.

Only two other players in All-Star Game history have made their first All-Star Game start in their home stadium: The Giants' Carl Hubbell in 1934 and Esteban Loaiza of the White Sox in 2003.
