Even if the MLB All-Star Game is no longer in Atlanta, there should still be a handful of Braves participating. Here are some candidates to represent Atlanta via


First Base:

First: Max Muncy, LAD
Second: Freddie Freeman, ATL
Third: Anthony Rizzo, CHC

A brief injured-list stint due to an oblique strain earlier this month wasn’t enough to cost Muncy his Phase 1 lead among NL first basemen. In Phase 2, he’s challenged by two players who have made a combined four All-Star starts. That includes Freeman, the NL’s starting first baseman in 2018 and ‘19 and the reigning NL MVP.

Second Base:

First: Ozzie Albies, ATL
Second: Adam Frazier, PIT
Third: Gavin Lux, LAD

No matter who wins this race, there will be a first-time All-Star starter at second base in the NL. Albies is the only one of the three to have made an All-Star Game before, earning a spot on the NL team as a reserve in 2018.


First: Ronald Acuña Jr., ATL
Second: Nick Castellanos, CIN
Third: Jesse Winker, CIN
Fourth: Mookie Betts, LAD
Fifth: Chris Taylor, LAD
Sixth: Juan Soto, WSH
Seventh: Bryce Harper, PHI
Eighth: Joc Pederson, CHC
Ninth: Mike Yastrzemski, SF

In the hunt for his second straight All-Star start, Acuña was the NL’s leading vote-getter in Phase 1. Yastrzemski was 16th in the NL outfield standings on June 21, but a late surge made him a finalist. It would be the first All-Star start for Yaz, as well as Castellanos, Pederson, Soto, Taylor and Winker.

Sadly, Austin Riley did not advance for third basemen, falling short of Kris Bryant, Nolan Arenado, and Justin Turner. However, the Braves could still have three starters, so keep voting!
