The MLB has officially released their first wave of results from the first round of All-Star voting for the 2023 season, and while the SF Giants don't feature heavily across the board, three players have deservingly found their way into the top-10 at their position.

First off we have the Giant who's perhaps off to the best start in 2023, third baseman J.D. Davis, who is hitting .286 with 9 home runs and 34 RBI on the year, and with a stellar glove at the hot corner, he has climbed to fourth in the voting at third base, giving him likely the best chance of any Giant to land on the All-Star roster. He sustained an ankle sprain in Tuesday night's win against the St. Louis Cardinals, but the Giants hope that it is not severe.

Next is standout second baseman Thairo Estrada, who is quickly becoming one of the most important players for this franchise, with another hot start to 2023, as he is hitting .291 with 9 home runs and 24 RBI's on the year, and even at a star studded position, he is sixth in the voting.

Lastly is Lamonte Wade Jr., who has become a cult hero by the bay, and has continued to grow and improve over the early portions of his Giants career, hitting .280 with 8 home runs and 20 RBI on the year, putting him squarely in 9th place at the first base position.

Ultimately, this is a Giants team that doesn't have the star power that we've seen in recent years, but with such a fun, tight knit group, they've got the potential to go on a deep playoff run, even if there's no stand out on this team that's going to strike fear into the hearts of opponents.

As for the three players featured after the first round of fan voting, they've all been off to great starts on the year and have become leaders of this group, and if they can continue this play, the team will have a good chance at making a surprising run.
