Boston Red Sox

  • Tuesday afternoon, Major League Baseball gave the first update on the 2022 All-Star voting since the ballots opened up two weeks ago. The numbers included the leaguing vote-getter at each position for both the American and National Leagues.

    The Red Sox currently have one player sitting at the top of his position – third baseman Rafael Devers. As of the latest calculation, Devers has 727,669 votes which is the second-most by any AL infielder.

    These new numbers also highlight just how competitive the AL East has been this year. Six of the nine leading vote-getters in the American League play for AL East teams – four from the Blue Jays, one from the Yankees, and then Devers.

  • In the National League, former Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts leads the way in the voting. He’s received an NL-high 1,446,050 votes so far.

    All Star voting runs through June 30 (fans can vote here). This year’s MLB All-Star Game will be held on Tuesday, July 19 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
