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.
