Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The second of three MLB All-Star Game voting updates was released on Monday, with a trio of Los Angeles Dodgers players holding strong at their respective positions.

Matt Kemp remains third among all National League outfielders with 925,697 votes. He continues to trail only the Atlanta Braves’ Nick Markakis (1,173,653) and the Washington Nationals’ Bryce Harper (1,002,696). Nonetheless, Kemp remained on track to start in the Midsummer Classic.

Cody Bellinger also maintained his standing at fourth among NL first basemen with 294,418 votes. Ahead of him are the Braves’ Freddie Freeman (1,433,140), the Chicago Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo (566,382) and the San Francisco Giants’ Brandon Belt (363,361).

Yasmani Grandal cracked the top-five among NL backstops with 333,549 votes. The Giants’ Buster Posey sits atop the group with 686,253 votes, followed by the Cubs’ Willson Contreras (596,111), the Braves’ Kurt Suzuki (557,692), and the St. Louis Cardinals’ Yadier Molina (366,271).

Meanwhile, Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner dropped out of the top five in voting at his respective position. He placed fifth in last week’s update, but the Giants’ Evan Longoria has since leapfrogged him with 221,100 votes.

Rounding out the leaders at the hot corner are Nolan Arenado of the Colorado Rockies with 1,124,563 votes, as well as Chicago’s Kris Bryant (677,185), Atlanta’s Johan Camargo (395,389) and the Cincinnati Reds’ Eugenio Suarez (228,806).

Fans can continue casting their votes a total of five times per day, up to a maximum of 35 ballots until voting concludes on July 5 at 8:59 p.m. PT.

The final NL voting update is scheduled for Monday, June 25. You can continue showing support for Kemp, Bellinger, Grandal, Turner and all of your other favorite Dodgers at MLB.com/vote.
