The Dodgers are 13th among 15 National League teams in runs scored, so it seems fitting that they could have no position players as All-Stars. In the second round of National League All-Star voting released on Sunday night, Adrian Gonzalez dropped out of the top five in balloting among National League first baseman.
The Dodgers have nobody in the top five at any position in the National League, nor do they have an outfielder in the top 15. Matt Kemp showed up at 14th among outfielders in the first round of balloting, on June 4.
Gonzalez was fourth among first baseman in the initial voting release, but has since been passed by both Allen Craig and Freddie Freeman.
The Dodgers have had an All-Star starter in each of the last three seasons. It looks like it will be up to Clayton Kershaw to continue that streak in 2013.
Here are the leaders at each position in the National League:
|Pos||First place (votes)||Second place (votes)|
