The second and final All-Star Game ballot update was released today, and it looks as if voting will come down until the final day. We are currently in “The Primary” stage, and voting concludes on Friday at 4pm EDT.
Per MLB, the top three vote-getters at each position (including nine outfielders) per league will move on to “The Starters Election,” which begins at noon ET on Wednesday, June 26. The votes will reset for a 28-hour voting window that ends at 4 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 27. Starters for the 2019 All-Star Game will be unveiled on ESPN that night at 7 ET. The pitchers and reserves will be announced on Sunday, June 30, at 5:30 p.m. ET.
Here’s how the latest results shape out in regards to the Dodgers.
Max Muncy is currently in fourth place with 446,704 votes. He trails Anthony Rizzo for third place by about 500,000 votes. With a few days left, it is unlikely Muncy will make it to the next round. Hopefully he’ll still find himself in Cleveland, and be selected as a reserve.
Enrique Hernandez finds himself in fourth place as well, but this race is a lot closer. He trails Ketel Marte by less than 100,000 votes, so a voting surge over the next few days could help get him into the final three.
Though he likely won’t play in the All-Star Game, Corey Seager is currently in third place. This is a very tight race, as he holds a lead of 35,000 votes over Trevor Story.
Justin Turner has fallen from third to fourth place, but still has a chance at the top three. He trails Josh Donaldson by less than 40,000 votes.
Cody Bellinger still has the most votes in the National League, but his outfield teammates have slipped in the ranks. In the first update, all three Dodger outfielders were in the top nine. Joc Pederson has slipped from fourth to seventh, and Alex Verdugo has slipped from ninth to 11th. As of now, Bellinger and Pederson would move into the final round. Verdugo trails by less than 100,000 votes.
