All-Star Game Voting Update: Adrian Gonzalez, Dodgers Continue To Lag Behind
Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Adrian Gonzalez is once again the lone Los Angeles Dodgers position player to appear in the top five in Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game voting update for the National League.

Last week, Gonzalez had 253,529 votes and trailed Anthony Rizzo of the Chicago Cubs (874,471 votes) and San Francisco’s Brandon Belt (271,670). The Dodgers’ first baseman is up to 360,539 votes, but still sits well behind Rizzo (1,264,404) and Belt (402,271).

The Cubs continue to dominate across the board, with Ben Zobrist leading second basemen in voting, Kris Bryant at third base, Addison Russell at shortstop, and Dexter Fowler and Jason Heyward ranking first and fourth, respectively, in outfielder voting.

Miguel Montero trails St. Louis’ Yadier Molina (first place) and San Francisco’s Buster Posey at catcher. Despite a torrid week in which he hit .370/.400/1.037 with six home runs and 11 RBIs, Corey Seager didn’t crack the top five in voting among shortstops.

Eight Dodgers were named to the All-Star Game ballot released in April; Gonzalez, Yasmani Grandal, Howie Kendrick, Joc Pederson, Yasiel Puig, Seager, Justin Turner and Chase Utley. Pitchers are not selected by the fans and thus don’t appear on the ballot or voting updates.

Six of the aforementioned players have previously been named to an All-Star Game, with the group combining to total 15 appearances in the annual Midsummer Classic. Utley leads the Dodgers with six selections, Gonzalez has five, and Grandal, Kendrick, Pederson and Puig each have one.

The 2016 MLB All-Star Game will be played on Tuesday, July 12 at Petco Park. Voting can be completed through June at
