Potential Dodgers All-Star: Mookie Betts
If/when Mookie Betts’ health improves by the All-Star Game, who wouldn’t love to see him play in it?! He’s not only a fan favorite among Dodger fans, but among baseball fans in general. Although he is currently on the 10-day injured list with a cracked rib, Betts hopes that he will only be out for a couple of weeks. (Get well soon, Mookie!)
Betts has had 245 at-bats up to this point in the season, with 17 home runs, 40 RBI and 6 stolen bases. He’s batting .273 with an on-base percentage of .349.
As of earlier this week, Betts is leading the voting among National League outfielders with 1,446,050 total votes, the second-highest amount of votes in MLB behind Aaron Judge on the American League side. Judge has received 1,512,368 votes.
Betts was previously an American League All-Star with the Boston Red Sox from 2016-2019. Quite obviously, he is very deserving of being named an All-Star again for the sixth time; it would be his second with the Dodgers in as many years. He’ll likely start.
