2023 NL All-Star team

Blake Snell (14-9, 2.25), who led the league in pitching bWAR and ERA, is my pick as National League Pitcher of the Year. The Padres left-hander was 10-2 with a 1.35 ERA in his final 16 starts.

Snell is one of three Padres players on the NL All-Star team, along with left fielder Juan Soto and second baseman Ha-Seong Kim.

Atlanta also placed three players on the team, including Player of the Year Ronald Acuna Jr., who had 41 home runs and 73 stolen bases, posting the best power/speed number of all time. He also led the league in runs, hits and on-base percentage.

Mookie Betts, who played right field, second base and third base for the Dodgers, was a close second.
