All-Star voting is underway, and fans have a chance to vote and send their favorite players to Los Angeles for the 2022 MLB All-Star Game.
The game takes place on Tuesday, July 19 at Dodger Stadium.
Several players are getting the attention they deserve, while others may be trailing in the All-Star voting slightly.
Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch tweeted an update on where several notable St. Louis Cardinals players stand in terms of All-Star voting.
In the first All-Star Game voting update from #MLB, Paul Goldschmidt has a solid lead for first at first base. Nolan Arenado trails Manny Machado at third base.
Albert Pujols, at DH, and Yadier Molina, at C, are both at third in the voting at their positions. #stlcards

Cards Stars Trending Well
These are mostly favorable results so far for the Cardinals and their stars.
It’s no surprise that Goldschmidt and Arenado are trending well at their respective positions.
It’s probably a long-shot that Pujols and Molina get voted in, or even make the roster for that matter.
But one surprise is that Tommy Edman doesn’t appear to be near the top in any category.
The Cards’ second baseman turned shortstop has been putting on a show on defense, picking up the slack after the departure of Kolten Wong.
Edman is also a very consistent hitter at the plate, hitting .280 with seven home runs, 29 RBI, and a respectable .776 OPS.
This doesn’t mean Edman has no chance at being an All-Star for the first time.
It just means he isn’t leading at his position.
Given his play, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that he’ll get on the roster.
It seems that Goldschmidt is a lock and Arenado has a good chance of making the roster at the very least.
