2024 MLB All-Star Game Voting: Shohei Ohtani, Mookie Betts & Teoscar Hernández Advance To Phase 2

Finalists for the 2024 MLB All-Star Ballot were announced with three Los Angeles Dodgers moving on to the next round.

Mookie Betts, Shohei Ohtani and Teoscar Hernández all advanced to Phase 2 of voting, and thus they will have a chance to be named the starters at their respective positions.

Will Smith finished third in voting among National League catchers, while Freddie Freeman finished second among first basemen.

Although Freeman would have been in position to advance, Bryce Harper was the leading vote-getter among all NL players, giving him a starting spot guaranteed and skipping the second round.

Harper paced all National League players and finished second across the Majors behind only Judge with 3,277,920 votes to grab his eighth All-Star selection and seventh fan-elected starting assignment (also: 2013, 2015-18, 2022).

The 31-year-old, who led all of Baseball in fan voting in 2017 and paced the NL in his first MVP season in 2015, is just the third Philadelphia first baseman (fourth time) to earn a fan-elected start. The two-time NL Most Valuable Player joins Pete Rose (1981-82) and John Kruk (1993) in accomplishing the feat.

In the American League, Aaron Judge finished as the top vote-getter.

Judge led all Major Leaguers with 3,425,309 total votes and paced the Majors in voting for a second time after also doing so in his AL MVP-winning 2022 season.

The 32-year-old, who leads the Majors with 30 home runs on the season, has picked up his sixth All-Star selection and sixth fan-elected starting assignment after earning the honor in each of the last three seasons, and in five of the last six All-Star Games overall.

Judge is now the 11th player since fan balloting returned in 1970 to lead the Majors in voting on multiple occasions, and he is the first since José Bautista did so for a second time in 2014. Other to accomplish that feat include Hall of Famers Ken Griffey Jr. (5), Rod Carew (4), Hank Aaron (2), Johnny Bench (2), Cal Ripken Jr. (2) and Ozzie Smith (2), as well as Ichiro Suzuki (3), Albert Pujols (2) and Alex Rodriguez (2).

Judge is also just the fourth Yankees player ever with at least six fan elections, joining Hall of Famers Derek Jeter (9) and Dave Winfield (7), as well as Rodriguez (6).

Overall, 12 Major League clubs have advanced players from Phase 1, with Philadelphia and Baltimore advancing a Major League-best six players each.

Including Judge and Harper, 14 of the 34 players (41.2%) moving on from Phase 1 are internationally-born, spanning six different countries and territories outside of the 50 United States. In addition, 20 (58.8%) come from diverse backgrounds.

The second phase of voting begins on Sunday, June 30, at 9:00 a.m. PT.

Phase 2 voting, which is available exclusively online and via mobile devices at MLB.com/vote, all 30 club web sites, the MLB App and the MLB Ballpark App, will give fans the opportunity to vote among the finalists at each position during a window that concludes at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 3rd.

Later that night, the winners will be announced at 4:00 p.m. on ESPN during the All-Star Game Starters Reveal.
