Milwaukee Brewers: Carlos Gomez An NL Starter For Now

Center fielder Carlos Gomez of the Milwaukee Brewers took a leap up the vote totals for the 2014 All-Star Game in updated figures released Monday.

Gomez now has 1,192,174 votes and is third in voting among NL outfielders, behind Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton.

Gomez moved up from sixth in the voting a week ago.

Meanwhile, teammate Ryan Braun—who was third two weeks ago—has fallen to sixth place with just more than a million votes. Left fielder Khris Davis is still in 13th place.

Jonathan Lucroy remains third among NL catchers behind Yadier Molina of the St. Louis Cardinals and Buster Posey of the San Francisco Giants.

Jean Segura is also third, behind shortstops Troy Tulowitzki of the Colorado Rockies and Brandon Crawford of the Giants and Aramis Ramirez is fourth at third base, well behind leader David Wright of the New York Mets.

Voting continues online through July 3 and ballots can be cast here.

Gomez and Segura were All-Star reserves a year ago—the first All-Star Game selection for both.

Gomez’s lead is slim—he is ahead of reigning MVP Andrew McCutchen of the Pittsburgh Pirates by less than 1,700 votes and is up on Charlie Blackmon of the Rockies by almost 63,000 ballots.

The All-Star Game will be played July 15 at Target Field in Minneapolis.
