2 Cleveland Indians who could be voted All-Stars

Voting for the MLB All-Star Game starters is officially open and while the Cleveland Indians don’t have as strong of cases as they have in the past, there’s still a few players that could have a chance. Major League Baseball is unique in that every team is represented in the game, but the starters are voted on by the fans. If you would like to vote, the ballot can be found here.

The fan vote is only available for the players in the field while pitchers are selected in a different fashion. While the MLB All-Star game is still over a month away, being played on July 13 and hosted by the Colorado Rockies, the fan vote is well underway and will have multiple stages. While the fan vote doesn’t always select the best players, it does open the door for any eligible player to be selected. While the Cleveland Indians have struggled this season, strong push from the fans could still result in a player winning the fan vote.

More from Away Back Gone

Of the players eligible for the Tribe this season in the fan vote, only Jose Ramirez has previously been selected an All-Star. There wasn’t a game during the 2020 season and the 2019 All-Star Game, being played in Cleveland, saw Carlos Santana voted a starter while Francisco Lindor was a reserve. Shane Bieber and Brad Hand also appeared on the roster with Bieber winning the All-Star Game MVP. As for Ramirez, he was an All-Star in both 2017 and 2018.

Looking ahead to the upcoming All-Star Game, Ramirez may once again be the team’s favorite to land on the roster in Colorado. However, there could be a case made for a couple positional players from the Cleveland roster. It can be assumed that Bieber will most likely be a representative of Cleveland on the pitching staff, but perhaps another member of the Tribe can make the roster as well.
