NL voting update

Major League Baseball just released the latest batch of National League All-Star voting results, and the leaders at each position remained unchanged.

Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols surpassed Phillies second baseman Chase Utley for the overall vote lead, now ahead of him by about 100,000 votes. The closest race is at catcher, where the Cardinals' Yadier Molina is about 88,000 votes ahead of the Braves' Brian McCann.

Braves rookie outfielder Jason Heyward is in position to be the second of three starters, but is less than 3,000 votes from the top spot, held by the Brewers' Ryan Braun.

Ramirez jumps to All-Star vote lead

An update was released on National League All-Star voting today, and the Marlins' Hanley Ramirez was the only new position leader, moving ahead of the Phillies' Jimmy Rollins. Philadelphia second baseman Chase Utley was the leading overall vote-getter, just ahead of Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols.

Perhaps the most notable development was the surge by Brewers rookie Jason Heyward, who jumped to second among outfielders and will be a starter if he stays in the top three. Heyward is batting .266 with 10 homers and 39 RBI.

Starting rosters will be announced on July 4.
