They are in sole possession of first place in the National League East. According to the media, “Acuna Jr. is on pace for 30 home runs and 70 doubles. He deserves to be named a third All-Star.

The All-Star fan vote is split into two tiers. The first-place vote earns a spot in each league’s starting lineup. The remaining players will be selected by their managers.
