The first MLB All-Star Game voting update was unveiled on Monday, and it revealed that a trio of Los Angeles Dodgers players are currently among the leaders at their respective positions.

Matt Kemp placed third among all National League outfielders with 351,780 votes. He trails only the Washington Nationals’ Bryce Harper (498,189) and the Atlanta Braves’ Nick Markakis (494,206) in the early going.

With 113,392 votes, Cody Bellinger checks in at fourth among NL first basemen. Ahead of him are the Braves’ Freddie Freeman (633,342), the Chicago Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo (248,275) and the San Francisco Giants’ Brandon Belt (162,750).

Finally, Justin Turner was fifth among players at his position with 87,387 votes. Leading the way by a wide margin at third base is Nolan Arenado of the Colorado Rockies (527,683), followed by the Cubs’ Kris Bryant (305,062), the Brave’ Johan Camargo (152,260) and the Cincinnati Reds’ Eugenio Suarez (87,659).

Last season, the Dodgers had an MLB-high six players represent them at the 2017 All-Star Game. Those who received a selection include Bellinger and Turner, with the latter being added as the Final Vote winner. Kenley Jansen, Clayton Kershaw, Corey Seager and Alex Wood were also chosen to take part in the festivities.

This is the fourth consecutive year in which the All-Star Game ballot is being conducted exclusively online. Fans can cast 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 next NL voting update is slated for Monday, June 18. An additional update will then take place one week later on Monday, June 25.
