When the Baseball Writers' Association of America reveals its 2024 inductees on Tuesday, the Baseball Hall of Fame may have a class with multiple members for the first time in four years.
As of Monday morning, Helton has 82.5 percent and Wagner 78.4 percent, needing 75 percent of the BBWAA vote for induction.
Early publicly published ballots usually mean a few percentage points lower final percentages.
Gary Sheffield may fall short of the 75 percent threshold in his final year of voting eligibility, but he has a chance. He'll need a future veterans committee if he fails.
Andruw Jones won't make it this year, but he'll rise from 58.1 percent in 2023 to 70 percent as his career is appreciated.
Over 21 MLB seasons, Adrian Beltre played for the Dodgers, Mariners, Red Sox, and Rangers.
Rodriguez hasn't improved since collecting 35.7% of the vote last year, his second year of eligibility.
He was 39.2 percent on Monday morning, up somewhat from a year earlier but unchanged from his 2022 ballot debut, when Rodriguez was 34.3 percent.
