Betts, Trout among top vote-getters after first update for 2022 All-Star Game

Major League Baseball has released the first round of updates for the 2022 All-Star Game vote, with two familiar faces among the league-leading vote-getters. 

In the National League, Mookie Betts leads all players with 1,446,050 votes -- highlighting a ballot that is filled with Los Angeles Dodgers players. 

Betts and Trea Turner are the only two to lead at their respective positions, but Freddie Freeman, Gavin Lux, Justin Turner, Cody Bellinger, Will Smith and Max Muncy all found themselves on NL leaderboards. 

On the other side of MLB, Mike Trout sits second amongst all vote-getters, behind just the New York Yankees Aaron Judge, but still one of just four players to secure more than a million votes. 

With his 1,295,854 votes, Trout is behind only Judge in the AL Outfield race. 

Other Angels to make it into the positional races are Shohei Ohtani, second in the designated hitter vote, and Taylor Ward, who sits in fifth amongst outfielders. 

The Dodgers were joined by the Toronto Blue Jays, Atlanta Braves, St. Louis Cardinals and Houston Astros to have a representative on each positional leaderboard.

A full look at ASG leading vote-getters can be found below.
