The All-Stars Ballot: Which Player Gets Your Vote?

The All-Stars Ballot: Which Player Gets Your Vote? - partycasino

With the Midsummer Classic returning in 2021, all eyes are now on the MLB ballot. Split into three stages; the vote is wide open right now with any player eligible to be picked. 

Phase 1 doesn't finish until 24th June, and you can vote for your favourite player multiple times, should you want to.

But what does the MLB betting say about the likely candidates? Here’s a look at the latest standings and the players who are out in front right now.

First Base


TOR - Vladimir Guerrero Jr: 51%

CWS - José Abreu: 9%

HOU - Yuli Gurriel: 8%

In the first spot, Guerrero is head and shoulders above the opposition and the leading player in the whole of the voting. However, there's still a way to go for the rest, with Abreu and Gurrriel being closely chased by Jared Walsh in fourth spot with 7% of the vote. 


LAD - Max Muncy: 23%

ATL - Freddie Freeman: 16%

CHC - Anthony Rizzo: 12%

Muncy is edging ahead in the voting for the NL, but he’s currently out on the 10-day injury list with a strained right oblique. That shouldn’t hamper his chances of playing in the All-Stars should his lead continue through to the final vote.

Second Base


TOR - Marcus Semien: 34%

HOU - Jose Altuve: 20%

NYY - DJ LeMahieu: 9%

Siemen has come tantalisingly close to being an All-Star player before when he finished third in the MVP in 2019 but never quite made the All-Star shortlist. However, he’s carved out a good early lead and is followed by two players who have five All-Star starts between them.


ATL - Ozzie Albies: 17%

PIT - Adam Frazier: 12%

LAD - Gavin Lux: 10%

None of the top five players here have ever started an All-Stars game before, so it looks certain there will be a complete newbie from this pick. Albies is looking comfortable in first place, but it's neck and neck between the next four players, which include Frazier and Lux, plus Nico Hoerner (10%) and Jake Cronenworth (9%).

Third Base


BOS - Rafael Devers: 28%

CWS - Yoán Moncada: 13%

HOU - Alex Bregman: 12%

Similar to the NL second base vote, the top two players are completely new to the All-Stars. Devers is looking as if he has an unassailable lead while Moncada and Bregman are fighting it out for the second and third spot, being pursued by Jose Ramirez on 9%.


CHC - Kris Bryant: 29%

STL - Nolan Arenado: 14%

LAD - Justin Turner - 12%

In the last four games on third base for the All-Stars, it’s either Bryant or Arenado who have claimed the spot - and it’s looking as if this year won’t be any different. The third place is far less certain as Turner is being chased by Manny Machado and Austin Riley, both on 11%.



BOS - Xander Bogaerts: 31%

TOR - Bo Bichette: 15%

CWS - Tim Anderson: 11%

Bogaerts is looking good for his fourth All-Stars selection, while Anderson and Bichette are slogging it out for their first appearance. Correa is hot on their heels in fourth spot with 10% of the vote and a gap of approximately 13,400.


SD - Fernando Tatis Jr: 40%

CHC - Javier Báez: 13%

LAD - Corey Seager: 9%

The 22-year-old golden boy from the Padres is a clear favourite in the National League, with the fourth-highest votes out of all the ballots so far. Seager is a doubt as he's been benched since May with a fractured hand, but if he's selected, he should be fit in time for the match.



LAA - Mike Trout: 15%

NYY - Aaron Judge: 11%

MIN - Byron Buxton: 8%

TEX - Adolis Garcia: 7%

TOR - Teoscar Hernandez: 5%

TOR - Randal Grichuk: 4%

BOS - Alex Verdugo: 4%

TB - Randy Arozarena: 4%

HOU - Michael Brantley: 3%

Trout and Judge have previously made appearances at the All-Star games, but the rest of the pack - apart from Brantley - are new to the occasion. Brantley was the starting left fielder for the American League in 2019 and has made a total of four All-Stars teams, but he's only just clinging on to his spot by fewer than 21,000 votes. 


ATL - Ronald Acuña Jr: 16%

CIN - Nick Castellanos: 11%

CIN - Jesse Winker: 9%

LAD - Mookie Betts: 8%

WSH - Juan Soto, 4%

LAD - Chris Taylor: 4%

PHI - Bryce Harper: 3%

SD - Trent Grisham: 3%

ARI - Ketel Marte: 3%

Acuña appeared in the 2019 Midsummer Classic as centre field, and once again, he's leading the pack. Winker and Castellanos are also polling well with fans and would be new to the All-Star lineup. There are fewer than 2300 votes between Ketel Marte and the next player, Joc Pederson, so he may yet slip out of the top nine.



KC - Salvador Perez: 43%

CWS - Yasmani Grandal: 9%

HOU - Martin Maldonado - 7%

It's tight between the second and third spot, with just 12,000 votes separating Frandal and Maldonado so far. However, it's Perez who is leading the charge thanks to his exemplary slugging performance over the past two years. 


SF - Buster Posey: 30%

STL - Yadier Molina: 16%

CHC - Willson Contreras: 11%

Experience counts for the National League nominations, with Contreras, Molina and Posey making up nine of the last 11 starts behind the plate. However, just lurking outside the top three is Will Smith, with 11% of the vote and just 14,000 votes behind Contreras.

Designated Hitter

LAA - Shohei Ohtani: 33%

BOS - JD Martinez: 18%

HOU - Yordan Alvarez: 9%

With an OPS+ plus an ERA+ of more than 150, it’s no surprise to see Shohei Ohtani’s name at the top. All of the players leading the polling have bounced back from injury or poor periods to take the top three spots in the early progress report.
