The 94th annual midsummer classic will be held this summer in Arlington, Texas, at Globe Life Field, the home of the defending World Series Champion Texas Rangers. At last year’s all-star game, the New York Mets had two representatives, Pete Alonso and Kodai Senga. Due to league rules, the blue and orange are guaranteed to have at least one player at this year’s game.

On Monday, MLB revealed the totals after the first round of voting for the game’s starters. The top ten vote-getters at each position for each league were revealed except for the outfield, where they revealed the top 20. Here is how the Mets fared after the first round of voting.

Every Mets player who appeared in the latest All-Star ballot update:

Alonso was the only Met to finish in the top five at his respective position in votes, as the Polar Bear sits in fourth place with 151,602 votes. Alonso is slashing .232/.310/.461 through 70 games with 15 home runs and 37 RBIs.

The 29-year-old could once again participate in the home run derby as the Polar Bear looks to join Ken Griffey Jr. as the only other three-time winner of the event.

Starling Marte

Starling Marte has returned to form after an injury-riddled 2023 campaign and sits in 16th place amongst outfielders with 144,514 votes. The 35-year-old is slashing .281/.335/.424 across 62 games with seven home runs and 28 RBIs, alongside 10 stolen bases.

Harrison Bader has had a solid debut season in Queens and rounded out the outfield voting in 20th place with 114,002 votes. Bader is slashing .272/.319/.385 across 62 games with four home runs and 26 RBIs.

Francisco Lindor

The Mets franchise shortstop has never represented the blue and orange at the midsummer classic and currently sits in seventh place with 109,221 votes.

Francisco Lindor didn’t have the strongest start to the year but has been playing much better lately and slashed .231/.305/.420 across 70 games this season with 12 home runs and 34 RBIs.

J.D. Martinez

Despite not debuting until April 26, J.D. Martinez has done enough to garner 67,203 all-star votes, which puts him in seventh place for the designated hitter position. Martinez has slashed .293/.363/.518 across 44 games with eight home runs and 27 RBIs.
