Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is currently at the top of the voting for the National League All-Star Game. He also holds the lead in the MLB in hitting with a .373 batting average.
Tulowitzki currently has 745,823 votes which places him above Yadier Molina of the St. Louis Cardinals who follows at second with 640,464 votes. Third place is Charlie Blackmon, also of the Colorado Rockies with 549,394 votes.
Upon making the All-Star Team, Tulowitzki will be named an All-Star for the fourth time in his nine year career.
The MLB tweeted out the “starting lineup” today:
NL @AllStarGame ballot leaders: 1B A. Gonzalez 2B Utley SS Tulo 3B Arenado C Molina OF Blackmon OF McCutchen OF Braun
— MLB (@MLB) May 28, 2014
Of course this is subject to change and is only a hypothetical starting lineup as of now.
The NL voting update was released Wednesday after the American League votes were released on Tuesday. In the National League, the first three spots are held by Detroit Tigers players: Miguel Cabrera in first, Ian Kinsler in second and Victor Martinez in third.
Voting is open until Thursday, July 3 at 11:59 pm. If you dislike what you see here there is always time to make your voice heard. All voters can submit a vote up to 35 times.
The All-Star game will take place on July 15 at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
