5 Atlanta Braves who should be 2023 MLB All-Stars

OF Ronald Acuña Jr.

When it comes to players across baseball who should be named to the 2023 MLB All-Star Game, the list should start with Acuña. Likely the early frontrunner for 2023 NL MVP, Acuña is currently slashing .324/.406/.554 with 11 HR and 31 RBI across 56 games, while also leading the National League with 23 SB, as well as with a 3.0 WAR.

RHP Spencer Strider

Another name that should be an easy selection to the 2023 MLB All-Star Game is that of Strider, who you could also make an argument for as the starter on the mound for the NL at the moment. Across 63.2 IP so far, which is also 11 starts, the right-hander owns a 5-2 record with a 2.97 ERA and 106:22 K:BB ratio, leading the major leagues in strikeouts (106) and K/9 (15.0), as well as the National League with a 5.8 H/9.

C Sean Murphy

Another player you could make a legitmate argument to start in the All-Star Game at the moment is Murphy at catcher. Across 46 games so far this season, Murphy is slashing .286/.398/.553 with 11 HR and 38 RBI.

RHP Bryce Elder

The second pitcher that Atlanta should send to the All-Star Game is Elder, who, like Strider, has been one of the NL's top right-handers so far this season. Across 65.2 IP, Elder owns a 3-0 record with a 1.92 ERA and 56:19 K:BB ratio through 11 starts, leading the MLB in ERA, as well as ERA+ (231).

1B Matt Olson

The final name on this list, Olson is a player who could potentially make the 2023 MLB All-Star Game with a strong finish to the first half of the season. Across 56 games this season, Olson is slashing a combined .233/.357/.533 with 17 HR and 42 RBI.
