The 2023 MLB All-Star Game will be taking place this year in Seattle at T-Mobile Park on Tuesday, July 11th. It will be the 93rd edition of the Midsummer Classic and marks the third time in franchise history the Seattle Mariners will be hosting the event, after previously doing it in 1979 at the Kingdome and 2001 at Safeco Field (which has since been renamed to T-Mobile Park in 2019).
This year, fan balloting for positional players will be done strictly online at MLB.com and the voting process will be broken down into two phases. The first phase is set to open on Wednesday, May 31st at noon ET, and runs until June 22nd to determine the top two finalists for each position. The second phase will take place from June 26 to June 29 to determine the final All-Star starters after fans submit their votes again based on the two finalists at each position.
For the reserves and pitchers, they will be chosen by the players and the Commissioner's Office, with the players' ballot selecting 17 players from each league, and the Commissioner's Office selecting the remaining six players from each league.
The Toronto Blue Jays have had the honour to send multiple representatives, four to be exact, to each of the last two All-Star Games in 2021 and 2022, as they look to do the same this year after a solid start to the 2023 season. With the voting process starting in a few days, let’s take a look at which potential Blue Jays may get the call to this year’s All-Star festivities.
