MLB’s first phase of All-Star balloting ended Thursday, and Sunday the league announced finalists for all positions. Three finalists were named for all positions except outfield, where nine finalists have made the second ballot.
Kris Bryant led all third basemen with 1,526,186 votes, far ahead of Nolan Arenado, second with 939,315.
Other Cubs finalists for the second round of voting: Willson Contreras, Anthony Rizzo, Javier Báez and Joc Pederson.
Here’s how Phase 2 voting will work.
Beginning Monday, June 28 at 11 a.m. CT, you can vote online at MLB.com, all 30 MLB tam sites, the MLB App and on Google Search (U.S. and Canada only). That voting will have a four-day window that concludes at 1 p.m. CT on Thursday, July 1. During this second phase of voting you can vote once daily on MLB platforms and submit up to 17 unique player votes on Google per day.
Thursday evening, the winners will be announced at 8 p.m. CT on the 2021 MLB All-Star Starters Reveal on ESPN. Then, Sunday, July 4 at 4:30 p.m. CT, ESPN will carry the 2021 MLB All-Star Selection Show, when this year’s complete All-Star rosters will be named.
