The most All-Stars the Phillies have ever sent to the Midsummer Classic is five. That will change this year:

If everything stays the same there will be at least six position players voted in. That’s before you get into the pitchers that are selected instead of voted on. Ranger Suarez, Zack Wheeler, Matt Strahm, Aaron Nola, Jeff Hoffman, and even top-3 NL ERA leader Christopher Sanchez could make a case. The Phils are looking at close to 9 definites. The all-time record is nine players from the 1958 Yankees. Johan Rojas even sits in seventh for the outfield and he’s not even in the big leagues right now.

Gone are the days of Pat Neshek, Odubel Herrera, and Jonathan Papelbon getting the MLB-mandated All-Star appearance for the Phillies. We’re on the verge of fielding an entire lineup. What a world.

Voting for Phase 1 is open until Thursday at noon if you want to help Stott, Schwarbs, and even Rojas make it to the next round. Here’s how All-Star selections are determined in Phase 1 & 2 via

The leading vote-getter in each league during Phase 1 will receive an automatic spot in their team’s starting lineup. Beyond those two players, the top two vote-getters at every position, and the top six outfielders, will advance to Phase 2 of the voting, which begins Sunday. If an outfielder is a league’s leading vote-getter, only the next four outfield finalists will move on to Phase 2 to determine who starts at the two remaining spots.
