Braves Fans Will Love MLB All-Star Voting Early Results
Phase 1 of the 2022 MLB All-Star Game's voting is well underway. Although there's plenty of time before the American League and National League starters are officially announced, that hasn't stopped Atlanta Braves fans from loving the early results.
2022 MLB All-Star Game Voting
The Braves are right back where they belong after a feverish 16-3 start to the month of June, and the key contributions of the team's stars are a big reason why. What makes the recent stretch even sweeter is the likely presence of these stars at July's 2022 MLB All-Star Game.
Ronald Acuna Jr. is currently projected to nab a starting role amongst the National League outfield thanks to his second-ranking 1.4 million votes. He likely won't be alone as four other Braves are in striking distance of the voting lead at their respective position groups.
Travis d'Arnaud ranks second for catchers, trailing Willson Contreras of the Chicago Cubs by 300,000 votes. Second baseman Ozzie Albies, shortstop Dansby Swanson, and DH William Contreras also rank second at their positions.
The top vote getter at each position will earn an automatic starting role, while the top two (or top six for outfield) advance to the next phase of voting and an opportunity to earn automatic bids to the 92nd Midsummer Classic.
Braves fans have plenty of time to keep casting votes. The 2022 MLB All-Star Game's Phase 1 voting will continue until Thursday, June 30 at 2 p.m. ET.
