Soto named NL All-Star

Washington Nationals right fielder Juan Soto has been selected to represent the Washington Nationals in the 2022 Major League Baseball All-Star Game. It is his second consecutive All-Star selection. Soto was selected to the National League roster by Major League Baseball. The 2022 All-Star teams were unveiled earlier this evening during the “2022 Chevrolet MLB All-Star Selection Show” on ESPN.

Soto, 23, leads Major League Baseball in walks (73) and is second in the National League in on-base percentage (.398). Additionally, he entered the day ranked among National League outfielders in weighted on-base average (2nd, .381), weighted runs created plus (2nd, 145), OPS (3rd, .869) and home runs (T3rd, 17). All told, Soto hit .243 with 16 doubles, 17 homers, 37 RBI, 73 walks, five stolen bases and 52 runs scored in 85 games through Sunday’s action.

Soto has hit safely in 13 straight games, going 18-for-44 (.409) with four doubles, three homers, six RBI, 16 walks and 14 runs scored during the streak. He has reached base safely in 20 straight games, posting a .506 on-base percentage (20 H, 21 BB) along the way.

Joining Soto in Los Angeles will be Nationals Manager Dave Martinez who was named to National League Manager Brian Snitker’s staff for the 2022 All-Star Game. Martinez was unable to manage the 2020 National League All-Star team after winning the 2019 World Series after the cancellation of the game due of the COVID-19 pandemic. He is the longest-tenured manager in Nationals History (2005-pres) and has the most managerial wins in Nationals history.
