Troy Tulowitzki top vote-getter so far in NL All-Star balloting
Major League Baseball has released an update on the National League All-Star balloting and Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is the leading vote-getter. Here are the rest of the results so far.
Major League Baseball has now released its first update of the season on the National League All-Star balloting for the starters in the 2014 Midsummer Classic.
There are several close races and voting continues through 11:59 p.m. ET on July 3, so a few of these races could change.
Here are the updated tallies by position (click here for full MLB PR release).
Los Angeles Dodgers
2. Freddie Freeman , Atlanta Braves ; 308,961
3. Justin Morneau , Colorado Rockies ; 305,327
2. Dee Gordon , Dodgers; 304,258
3. Brandon Phillips , Cincinnati Reds ; 187,067
, Rockies; 318,111
2. Aramis Ramirez , Milwaukee Brewers ; 282,843
3. David Wright , New York Mets ; 278,425
, Rockies; 745,823
2. Brandon Crawford , San Francisco Giants ; 218,123
3. Andrelton Simmons , Braves; 207,402
St. Louis Cardinals
2. Buster Posey , Giants: 421,100
3. Evan Gattis , Braves; 241,005
, Rockies; 549,394
2. Andrew McCutchen , Pittsburgh Pirates ; 467,378
3. Ryan Braun , Brewers; 446,780
4. Giancarlo Stanton , Miami Marlins ; 426,228
5. Yasiel Puig , Dodgers; 383,384
6. Carlos Gomez , Brewers; 370,630
The NL will also have a designated hitter, but that will be named by the manager, Cardinals skipper Mike Matheny. So as things stood now, the starters would be Gonzalez, Utley, Arenado (who may still be injured by the time the game is played), Tulowitzki, Molina, Blackmon, McCutchen and Braun along with Matheny's choice for DH.
Again, though, there's lots of time still remaining to cast those ballots.
