2023 All Star Game voting recently opened, with the ballots being released yesterday. The Orioles hold the 3rd best record in the majors at 35-21 and have multiple players deserving of an All Star selection. Here are a few players who should be featured on your ballot.
Members of the Baltimore Orioles who deserve your all-star game vote
The most obvious All Star on the Baltimore Orioles is Adley Rutschman. The second-year catcher has been off to a fantastic start with a slash line of .289/.411/.443 and 8 home runs. Rutschman also has continued to play stellar defense and leads the A.L in walks with 43, while only striking out 31 times. He's been one of the most patient and productive hitters in all of baseball, while being arguably the most complete catcher in the game today.
Mullins has had an All Star worthy season, but there is one caveat. Mullins suffered a right groin strain and was placed on the 10-day I.L. earlier this week. He is set to miss a good chunk of time, but his production so far this season warrants your vote. He has slashed an impressive .263/.356/.479 with 8 home runs and a team-leading 39 RBI's. He also has stolen 13 bases and played an elite centerfield for the Orioles this season.
Hays has been arguably the most underrated Oriole this season. Although he has only hit 6 homer runs, he is leading the Orioles with an .860 OPS and has the third best batting average in the American League at .311. He also has a team-leading 3 outfield assists while playing a solid left field in Baltimore. The American League outfield is loaded with talent, but Austin Hays has been one of the most consistent and productive outfielders in the league this season and he deserves your vote.
After a very slow start to the season, Anthony Santander has completely turned around his season thanks to an extremely productive month of May. Over the last 30 days, Santander has a slash line of .330/.414/.634 and 8 home runs. His production for the season has sky-rocketed, leading to a .857 OPS over the entire season. He is on pace for the highest batting average and on base percentage in a single season of his career. Santander has looked even better this season then he did last season when he clubbed a career-high 33 homeruns.
The Orioles are having a fantastic season so far and have many players who deserve spots on the All-Star team. Make sure to vote for your favorite Orioles at orioles.com/allstar.
