The "Final Vote" ballots have been tallied, and Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman and Blue Jays reliever Steve Delabar are the last two names to be added to the All-Star rosters.

Freeman (.307/.388/.470, 9 HR) prevailed on a five-player ballot that included Yasiel Puig of the Dodgers, Hunter Pence of the Giants, Ian Desmond of the Nationals and Adrian Gonzalez of the Dodgers. In the end, Freeman's 19.6 million votes were enough to edge Puig.

Here's Freeman's reaction to the news on Twitter ...

As for Delabar (41 1/3 IP, 1.74 ERA, 57 K), he bested four fellow relievers: David Robertson of the Yankees, Joaquin Benoit of the Tigers, Koji Uehara of the Red Sox and Tanner Scheppers of the Rangers.

This will be the first All-Star appearance each for Freeman and Delabar.

As MLB notes, the total of 79.2 million votes case is a "Final Vote" record.
