The latest 2022 MLB All-Star Game voting update has Los Angeles Dodgers teammates Mookie Betts and Trea Turner still on track to start at Dodger Stadium. Betts leads all National League players with 2,270,566 votes. Turner is pacing NL shortstops with 1,369,759 votes.
The Dodgers are the only NL team that has two leading vote-getters among position players. However, the Atlanta Braves have a Major League high-tying six players on track to reach Phase 2 of All-Star Game voting. Among them is Ronald Acuña Jr., who is not far behind Betts at 2,197,684 votes.
Phase 1 of All-Star Game voting is open until 11 a.m. PT on Thursday. During this period, fans can complete a ballot up to five times per every 24-hour period. Voting is being held exclusively at MLB.com, all 30 team websites and through the MLB app.
The top two vote-getters at each position (top six for outfielders) in each league will be revealed on MLB Network at 2:00 p.m. and advance to the finalists phase of voting to determine who makes the All-Star teams.
In addition, for the first time since two-phase balloting began in 2019, the leading vote-getter in each league during the first phase of voting will be an automatic All-Star Game starter and bypass the second phase of voting.
That adds a layer of intrigue for Betts, who remains on the 10-day injured list due to a fractured rib and has yet to resume baseball activities. The Dodgers initially hoped he would return around two weeks from his IL stint that begin June 19, but manager Dave Roberts has since acknowledged that is unlikely.
Though, the All-Star Game at Dodger Stadium would potentially be the first Betts has appeared in as a member of the Dodgers. He opted out of the Midsummer Classic at Coors Field last season in favor of rest and recovery from nagging injuries.
Turner also has yet to appear in an All-Star Game for the Dodgers. He earned a first career selection last season while still with the Washington Nationals.
