MLB All-Star Game voting: Mariners' Jean Segura, Brewers' Jesus Aguilar win Final Vote
The Seattle shortstop and the Milwaukee first baseman will be headed to D.C.
The results of the Final Vote to determine the last roster spot on the American League and National League All-Star teams are in. Winning the online balloting for the AL is Mariners shortstop Jean Segura. Prevailing in NL is Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar.
Segura entered Wednesday's slate with a slash line of .329/.356/.467 (130 OPS+) with 24 doubles and 14 stolen bases. That's excellent production for any player, let alone a shortstop. Beyond that, Segura's been an essential contributor to one of the AL's best teams in 2018. That's especially the case given the suspension of Robinson Cano for Seattle.
Here's Segura's getting the good news ...
This will be Segura's second All-Star appearance.
Aguilar is presently tied for the NL lead with 23 home runs, and he boasts a .302/.369/.631 slash line, which comes to an OPS+ of 161. He's a big part of a Brewers team that ranks second in the NL in homers. Aguilar also came up big for Milwaukee while Eric Thames was sidelined with a thumb injury.
Here's Brewers manager Craig Counsell letting his team know that Aguilar is headed to D.C. ...
Aguilar is now an All-Star for the first time.
