Here is the status quo of the All-Star Ballot

The competition for who will advance to the 2nd round of the 2022 MLB Star Game Fan Vote, presented by Mastercard, will begin to take shape.

In the first round of voting, two starters will be identified – each player with the highest number of votes – who will advance to the final round of fan voting in the Star Game on July 19 at Dodger Stadium.

Fans will be able to complete the 2022 Chevrolet MLB All-Star ballot up to five times in each 24-hour period until Stage 1 of voting ends on June 30 at 2:00 PM ET. You can only vote on, all 30 MLB club sites, and the MLB app.

The leading collector of the American League and National League will receive a place in the starting line-up of his Star Team after Phase 1. In addition to these two players, the two best collectors in each position and the six best field players will advance to the voting finals. If the outfielder is the biggest collector in the league, only the next four field finalists will move to Phase 2 to determine who will start in the other two places.

Currently, Yankees’ slug Aaron Judge AL (1,512,368 votes) and Dodgers star Mookie Betts NL (1,446,050 votes) have the most votes.

Here is an overview of the current star performances of AL and NL by position.

1. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Blue Jays: 947,045 votes

3. Anthony Rizzo, Yankees: 445,683
4. Luis Arraez, twins: 307,442

Blue Jays has someone in the top three on every ballot except DH, and Vlad Jr. is the first of four Toronto players to be in the starting lineup to start the Star Game if the vote ends today. France are looking for their first All-Star nod and Rizzo could join the AL team for the first time in three seasons with the Cubs.

1. Jose Altuve, Astros: 710 708
2. Santiago Espinal, Blue Jays: 522 154
3. Andrés Giménez, Guardians: 514 982

5. Trevor Story, Red Sox: 320 262
• Complete results

Altuve (12 home runs, 144 OPS +) could make it to the eighth star team with Astros, but Giménez (0.302 average, 140 OPS +) and the versatile Espinal are not far behind in their first All-Start. The star nods. Keep an eye on Story in his new place at the Red Sox.

• Complete results

Not surprisingly, Judge and his 25 leading MLB home squares are at the top of the AL’s external vote – he is currently the overall voter with more than 1.5 million votes in the entire round of voting. It’s also not surprising to see Trout looking for the nod of his 10th star right behind him. The ballot also has some interesting names, such as Trout’s teammate Ward (180 OPS +) and fiery Buxton (19 home runs) who want to get on his first star team.

1. Alejandro Kirk, Blue Jays: 1,057,008
2. Jose Trevino, Yankees: 387,983
3. Salvador Perez, Royals: 266,604
4. Martín Maldonado, Astros: 231 005
5. Christian Vázquez, Red Sox: 199,010
• Complete results

Kirk is a fun name at the top of the AL catcher poll – and 35% of his votes are Trevino’s 13%, the biggest lead of all the star candidates. Also a fan favorite deserves its place. Kirk directs all catchers with an average stroke of 0.307 and leads AL catchers with 2.2 fWAR.

1. Yordan Alvarez, Astros: 835 669
2. Shohei Ohtani, Angels: 555,056
3. JD Martinez, Red Sox: 307 706
4. Danny Jansen, Blue Jays: 297,484
5. Miguel Cabrera, Tigers: 248,312
• Complete results

Alvarez leads the two-way star Ohtan thanks to his elite bullshit – Astros DH scores 0.311 with 18 home runs and 1,026 OPS. Ohtan have 13 home runs, seven stolen balls and 37 balls, while third-place Martinez hits 0.335 with 23 doubles. It’s also cool to see Miggy’s name rise to the top five in his major leagues in season 20.

1. Paul Goldschmidt, Cardinals: 930,441 votes
2. Pete Alonso, Mets: 602 321
3. Freddie Freeman, Dodgers: 469 197
4. Matt Olson, Braves: 403,514
5. Eric Hosmer, Padres, 147 019
• Complete results

Goldschmidt earned six consecutive All-Star selections with D-backs in 2013-2018, but is still looking for his first nod as a Cardinal member. He is on the right track this year as he leads the NL in terms of average (0.339) and base percentage (0.417) and is second in the NL with 0.614. He is ahead of Alonso, the NL leader in home games (19) and the MLB leader in the RBI (64), and Freeman and Olson, the man who replaced him in the first base in Atlanta, in a close race to break the top three.

1. Jazz Chisholm Jr., Marlins: 634 762
2. Ozzie Albies, brave: 589 804
3. Jeff McNeil, Mets: 580 257
4. Gavin Lux, Dodgers: 256,411
5. Nolan Gorman, Cardinals: 214,383
• Complete results

Chisholm is one of the stars of 2022, producing 13 home teams, 11 wins and 131 OPS +. He competes for the first star of his career and has taken an easy lead over Albies, who recently had a leg fracture, and McNeil, who has had a strong rebound in the Wild, hitting 0.327 with four. homers and 143 OPS +.

1. Manny Machado, Padres: 969 582
2. Nolan Arenado, Cardinals: 581 363
3. Austin Riley, Braves: 557 220
4. Justin Turner, Dodgers: 254,057
5. Eduardo Escobar, Mets: 234,079
• Complete results

Machado and Arenado are no strangers to Star Games, there are 11 choices between them and Arenado that started a year ago in the NL. Machado left the game on Sunday with a problem with his left ankle joint, but he seems to have avoided a major injury, which is definitely good news for Padres. The 29-year-old slashed .328 / .400 / .545 with 12 home teams during his first 66 games. Behind the Arenado (13 home teams, 141 OPS +) is Riley, who has continued last year’s breakthrough with a great start to 2022 (18 home teams, 127 OPS +) as he catches his first All-Star nod.

1. Trea Turner, Dodgers: 811 839
2. Dansby Swanson, Braves: 599 251
3. Francisco Lindor, Mets: 521 489
4. Tommy Edman, Cardinals: 277,699
5. Fernando Tatis Jr., Padres: 165 074
• Complete results

If Tatis, the starting player of the NL star team last year, is on the shelf with a left wrist fracture, we may have a first start in short sports in the NL this year. Turner hits nine home balls with 65 games and 14 innings in 0.301, is currently the leader, followed by a couple of NL East short stops in Swanson and Lindor.

1. Mookie Betts, Dodgers: 1,446,050
2. Ronald Acuña Jr., brave: 1,398,563
3. Joc Pederson, Giants: 630,584
4. Starling Marte, Mets: 469 344
5. Juan Soto, nationalities: 451 079
6. Adam Duvall, Braves: 332,387
7. Mark Canha, Mets: 320,910
8. Marcell Ozuna, brave: 303,945
9. Cody Bellinger, Dodgers: 301 121
10. Harrison Bader, Cardinals: 256,126
• Complete results

Betts is the largest collector of votes in the NL, with nearly 1.5 million votes, making it the sixth star game in the last seven seasons. However, he has a hot Acuña on his tail, who did not miss a shot after returning to the World Cup defending champion at the end of April. Elsewhere on the ballot, Pederson is looking for his first All-Star selection from the 2015 newcomer season on the Dodgers team, and Marte and Canha, the new winners of NL’s East, will both compete for the spot.

1. Willson Contreras, Cubs: 801 630
2. Travis d’Arnaud, Braves: 471 921
3. Yadier Molina, Cardinals: 454,685
4. Tyler Stephenson, Red: 370,453
5. Will Smith, Dodgers: 323 894
• Complete results

Contreras leads all MLB catchers with 12 home runs and his .917 OPS is best only with his younger brother William .987 (William is in All-Star voting at DH and is second in voting). Veterina Molina, who turns 40 just before the Star Game, is applying for her 11th career nod.

1. Bryce Harper, Phillies: 1,059,433
2. William Contreras, brave: 584,630
3. Albert Pujols, Cardinals: 344 248
4. Max Muncy, Dodgers: 189,643
5. JD Davis, Mets: 134,569
• Complete results

The reigning MVP of the NL leads the DH race by a large margin and is the only NL player with over a million votes after Bettsi and Acuña. Harper will score 0.326 home runs and 1,013 OPS this season. But what if Pujols got as a cardinal for another Midsummer classic, the team he represented in nine of his ten Star Games?
