All-Star Game

Adrian Gonzalez 4th among 1B in NL All-Star vote

The only other Dodger to show up on the balloting leaderboard was Matt Kemp, who ranked 14th among National League outfielders.


The first round of National League All-Star balloting results have been released, and the only Dodger with a reasonable chance to be named a starter is Adrian Gonzalez, who is currently in fourth place among NL first baseman.

Gonzalez trails Joey Votto by nearly 600,000 votes, so its unlikely he makes up that gap, but Gonzalez is the highest ranked Dodger on the NL All-Star ballots. Brandon Belt and Paul Goldschmidt are also ahead of Gonzalez.

Gonzalez has had a resurgent season for the Dodgers, hitting .326/.383/.513 with 11 doubles, eight home runs, and 42 RBI. Gonzalez is a four-time All-Star, from 2008-2010 in San Diego and 2011 in Boston.

The top five at each position are listed, including 15 outfielders. Matt Kemp is the only other Dodger to show up, ranking 14th among outfielders.

Giants fans have voted a lot. Pablo Sandoval and Buster Posey lead their respective positions, while Belt, Marco Scutaro and Brandon Crawford are second. Among outfielders, Hunter Pence is sixth, Angel Pagan eighth and Gregor Blanco 11th.

In-stadium All-Star voting ends June 28, and online and mobile voting ends on July 4. The All-Star rosters will be announced on TBS on Sunday, July 7.

The 2013 All-Star Game will be held at Citi Field in New York on Tuesday, July 15.
