NL All-Star vote update: Aramis overtakes David Wright at third base
In the latest update on the NL All-Star balloting, we learn there's been a change at third base.
The Brewers continue to fare well in the standings and when it comes to the All-Star ballot box.
This week, Aramis Ramirez has overtaken David Wright and now leads a tightly compressed pack of third basemen. Carlos Gomez has also moved into third plus -- and thus starting position -- in the outfield, at the expense of the Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton. As well, Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy has moved into second place behind Yadier Molina of the Cardinals. Otherwise, Troy Tulowitzki of the Rockies continues to be the NL's leading vote-getter.
Here's the full rundown of how things presently stand in the senior circuit ...
Voting is still taking place at MLB.com and will continue until 11:59 p.m. ET on July 3. The game itself takes place at Target Field in Minneapolis on Tuesday, July 15.
