The last Major League Baseball All-Star Game Final Vote update was released on Wednesday morning, and Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Max Muncy once again ranks third in the National League.
He trails Jesus Aguillar of the Milwaukee Brewers and Brandon Belt of the San Francisco Giants and is ahead of Trea Turner of the Washington Nationals and Matt Carpenter of the St. Louis Cardinals.
Muncy had a big night at the plate against the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night to help out his All-Star case. He went 2-for-3 with a walk while hitting a home run with two outs in the ninth inning to ruin Padres starter Eric Lauer’s complete game shutout bid.
The home run was Muncy’s 21st of the season, which ranks fourth in the NL behind only Nolan Arenado, Aguillar and Bryce Harper. Muncy has had significantly fewer at-bats than all three of those players though.
If Muncy does get voted in, he will join outfielder Matt Kemp and closer Kenley Jansen on the NL roster. Kemp was voted in by the fans to be a starter in the game.
The Dodgers have teamed up with the New York Yankees this year as their slugger, Giancarlo Stanton, is on the American League Final Vote ballot. He also currently ranks third behind Jean Segura of the Seattle Mariners and Andrew Benintendi of the Boston Red Sox.
If Muncy is going to be voted into the game then Dodger fans are going to need to keep voting, as they did for Justin Turner last season when they broke the Final Vote record. You can vote for both Muncy and Stanton HERE.
