Dodgers News: Will Smith Remains in Second Place in NL All-Star Catcher Voting

In an updated All-Star Game leaderboard, Will Smith remains in second place among catchers in the National League.

Smith’s .293 batting average entering Tuesday is good for 18th in the league with a ninth-best OPS of .917 to go with 10 homers. In the month of June, Smith has hit 2 home runs with a .239/ .434/.413 split entering Tuesday.

The 28-year-old is almost 500,000 votes behind Braves catcher Sean Murphy with a healthy lead over J.T. Realmuto. Smith has never played in an All-Star game — much to the chagrin of one of his teammates — but was selected to the All MLB Second-Team last season after a .260/.343/.465 performance.

“Will Smith hits a two-run home run on his bobblehead night to give the Dodgers a 2-0 lead. The best catcher in baseball does best catcher in baseball things yet again. Vote him for the All-Star game right now.”

Voting for “Phase 1” ends on Thursday.
