Puig holds a 320,888-vote lead over Giancarlo Stanton of the Marlins (2,681,019) for the final starting spot, with Ryan Braun of the Brewers (2,509,770) not far behind.

Puig ranked fifth in the initial All-Star ballot update on May 28, but led all outfielders in voting updates each of the last four weeks.

The All-Star rosters will be announced on ESPN at 4 p.m. PT on Sunday. The 2015 All-Star Game will be played on Tuesday, July 15 at Target Field in Minnesota.
