The MLB All-Star will take place on July 16 this year, and it's time to vote your favorite Boston Red Sox players into the action.

Kenley Jansen was Boston's lone All-Star representative last year, but the Sox have a long list of worthy candidates for the American League squad. They're up against many other notable players, though, and there will be a lot of tight races across the diamond.

The Red Sox's record isn't impressive compared to some of their AL counterparts with multiple players in the running for starting positions, but there are a ton of Sox making noise this year. Rafael Devers, Connor Wong, Wilyer Abreu, and Jarren Duran would all be fine choices for their respective positions.

MLB All-Star voting occurs in two phases. Here's how and when you can vote to get some Red Sox into the action on July 16 at Globe Life Field.

2024 MLB All-Star voting schedule: When can Red Sox fans vote for their favorite players?

MLB fans can vote for their favorite players through an online ballot. Phase One of voting began on June 5 and runs through the 27, and fans can vote up to five times per day. Voters can choose any of the eligible players on the ballot, or write in any position player of their choice, so long as they've played the position you plan to write them in for this season.

Voting rules for the 2024 MLB All-Star Game

Fan votes determine the eight starting position players for MLB's respective leagues. Unfortunately, there is no fan vote for pitchers, so Sox fans won't be able to pull for Tanner Houck or any of Boston's other top hurlers.

Each league gets 32 roster spots, which go to eight starting position players, 17 bench players, five starting pitchers and three relievers. Pitchers and position player reserves are chosen through a combination of player polls and decisions from the commissioner's office.

If you want to see the Red Sox represented at the All-Star Game, cast your votes now. The fan vote ends soon, and your favorite Sox players are up against some very worthy competition.
