Dodgers: All-Star Game Voting Has Max Muncy in the Lead at First Base

An update on Muncy and other Dodgers All-Stars



The All-Star Game is just around the corner and Dodgers fans are doing their part to get our guys to Denver. Voting has been opened for a few weeks now, and we have our first update on the voting numbers for Los Angeles players. 

Dodgers’ first baseman Max Muncy leads the way and is in first place at his position. Given the way that he has played early on in the year, it comes as no surprise to fans in Los Angeles. Muncy is currently on the injured list with an oblique issue, but he has slashed .264/.418/.528 with 14 homeruns so far. 

Gavin Lux is in third place at second base voting for the Dodgers. He is just behind the Braves’ Ozzie Albies and the Pirates Adam Frazier. Lux has 10 percent of the votes at the position, chasing Albies who has 17 percent of the votes. 

Justin Turner has 13 percent of the vote over at third base which puts him third in voting. He chases the Cubs’ Kris Bryant and the Cardinals’ Nolan Arenado. The Dodgers third baseman came out swinging early on the year but did go through a bit of a cool-off in their tough stretch of games.

Corey Seager is also in third at shortstop. Mookie Betts, Chris Taylor, and Will Smith have all garnered plenty of votes but none of them have cracked the top 3 at their position. Betts is 4th among all NL outfielder voting, giving him a decent shot at making the team. So there is at least a decent chance there are a few Dodgers playing in the game this Summer. 

Fans looking to continue to vote can do so here through June 24th.

  1. I wouldn’t vote for any Dodger except for CT3. I would like to see all of them get in but they are not putting up all-stars numbers and they really need the time to rest and recoup. Stay under the radar and surprise the league down the stretch until the playoffs. However what CT3 can do all around the field should be noticed by fans from other regions. People gotta know what a true super utility player is and how he plays the game 100% all the time !

    • I agree. No everyday player for the Dodgers has all star numbers. Muncy’s 400 OBA is very impressive because of the walks he draws. And the slugging percentage is very good too. But the BA isn’t enough. Taylor has been the team MVP so far this year. DR gets to pick reserve All stars as the NL all star manager. He absolutely needs to select Taylor as a reserve all Star.

    • Nah … Muncy’s stats are better than any other 1B and he’s never gotten the distinction. Taylor and Muncy definitely; Urias (another first timer) should get consideration.

      I am with you though – I’d rather they get rest than go.
