The 2024 MLB All-Star Game rosters are beginning to take shape, with the voting results for Phase 2 of fan voting revealed Wednesday.

New York Yankees star Aaron Judge and Philadelphia Phillies slugger Bryce Harper had already made their teams by topping out each league in Phase 1, leaving every other slot in the starting lineup to be determined by a head-to-head run-off between the top two vote-getters at each position.

The Philadelphia Phillies, who hold the top record in MLB at 56-29, led all teams with three starters, all of them in the infield. The New York Yankees, Baltimore Orioles, Houston Astros, Cleveland Guardians and San Diego Padres also had multiple starters.

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ sole representative among the starters will be Shohei Ohtani, who is making his first appearance with the Dodgers amid a season in which he leads all NL players in batting average, OPS, home runs and WAR. The Dodgers could have had a second starter, but ESPN’s announcement show reported that Teoscar Hernández lost the final outfield spot to Fernando Tatis Jr. by about 3,000 votes.
