With just under a month to go until the 2023 MLB All-Star game, voting is cranking up as fans look to get their favorite players into the game. The first phase of voting closes on June 22nd, with the second phase being open from June 26th until teams are announced on June 29th.
Following the series sweep over the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Milwaukee Brewers were briefly back on top of the NL Central and will look to hold onto that spot and play in the postseason. With each team having at least one player on the All-Star roster, it is difficult to pick from the Brewers with so many injuries and a recent drop in form before the Pirates' series.
Last season three Brewers made the roster and all on the pitching side. Corbin Burnes made it for the second time, Josh Hader for the fourth, and Devin Williams earned his first All-Star appearance in last year's event in Colorado. Now let's look ahead to this year's game and see which three members of the Brewers could make an All-Star appearance.
Here are 3 Brewers that are most likely to make an All-Star appearance in 2023
Brewers potential All-Star #1 - Devin Williams - RP
He may be the most likely to receive the honor, but Devin Williams has still had a stellar season on the mound and continues to be one of the elite relief pitchers in all of baseball. This season he currently has a 1.90 ERA in 24 appearances, claiming three wins and just one loss, per MLB.com.
His ERA is down slightly from last season's but it is his 12 saves that have been impressing, already being close to the 15 he claimed in 65 games last year. The batting average against him is also down slightly to .145 and outside of a disastrous ninth inning against the Minnesota Twins last week, his form has been impeccable.
For the All-Star game, five relief pitchers tend to be on the roster and despite good competition, Williams should comfortably still make the team. Former teammate Hader is still in the NL with the San Diego Padres while Alexis Diaz of the Cincinnati Reds has had a strong season for a team performing way above expectations.
There are still names such as Camilo Doval with the San Francisco Giants and Nick Anderson of the Atlanta Braves that will fancy their chances of making the team too. Of those mentioned Williams is only slightly behind Diaz and Hader in ERA.
Brewers pitching as a whole has been up and down but that is mainly due to injuries. There has been no Aaron Ashby so far this season, Brandon Woodruff has missed a lot of time along with Wade Miley and those that have stepped in have struggled, including former Cy Young winner Corbin Burnes. This may help boost Williams' chance of making the All-Star roster because of his performances when others have struggled.
