The Los Angeles Dodgers are inching closer to not having a starter in the 2017 MLB All-Star Game at Marlins Park. One week after falling behind Cincinnati Reds shortstop Zack Cozart, Corey Seager remains in second place with 1,143,767 votes.
Cozart leads all shortstops with 1,465,327 votes. Chicago Cubs shortstop Addison Russell remains in third place with 967,495 votes. The Cubs have leading vote-getters at third base (Kris Bryant) and the outfield (Jason Heyward).
Just as Seager was unable to overtake Cozart in voting, his Dodgers teammates still continue to trail at their respective positions.
Yasmani Grandal remains fifth among catchers with 535,432 votes. San Francisco Giants backstop Buster Posey paces his NL counterparts with 1,890,039 votes. He leads the Cubs’ Willson Contreras by over 900,000 votes.
Justin Turner checks in behind Bryant and Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado. Turner has 747,659 votes, while Arenado has 1,300,612 votes; trailing Bryant by more than 300,000 votes.
While Turner may not start in Miami, he should factor heavily into the discussion as an All-Star Game reserve. Once Turner logs enough plate appearances to qualify, he’ll lead the NL with a .385 batting average. Turner is currently in the midst of a 13-game hitting streak.
Yasiel Puig is up to 430,423 votes, maintaining his standing at 14th and sitting well outside the outfield picture. Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals continues to pace all NL players, now up to 2,827,330 votes.
Fans can cast their votes online for All-Star Game starters a total of 35 times. A maximum of five ballots can be cast within a 24-hour period. A fifth NL All-Star Game voting update will be released Monday, June 26.
