Carlos Gomez Slips To 4th In NL All-Star Vote

With a little less than three weeks left in the voting, Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez has slipped to fourth in All-Star voting among National League outfielders in ballots tallied through Sunday.

Andrew McCutchen of the Pittsburgh Pirates surged from fourth to second over the last week and now has 1,727,534 votes. Gomez slid from third to fourth with 1,628,401 votes, a little more than 31,000 behind Miami Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton (1,659,430).

Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig continues to lead the voting in the outfield for the NL with 1,942,701.

Right fielder Ryan Braun of the Brewers moved up one spot to fifth with 1,388,578 votes. Left fielder Khris Davis advanced a spot as well; he is now 12th with 643,601 votes.

At other positions, Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy continues to be well behind Yadier Molina of the St. Louis Cardinals, who has 2,003,557 votes, and Buster Posey of the San Francisco Giants, who has 1,414,363 votes. Lucroy has received 1,138,212 votes to this point.

Jean Segura is third among shortstops with 786,529, about 113,000 behind second-place Brandon Crawford of the Giants, but neither is within shouting distance of the NL’s top overall vote-getter, Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who has been named on 2,593,387 ballots thus far.

Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez is fourth at his position with 814,627. David Wright of the New York Mets leads with 1,051,640 votes, Pablo Sandoval of the Giants is second with 973,221 and Colorado’s Nolan Arenado is third with 895,905.

Voting continues through 10:59 Central Time on July 3 and ballots can be cast here. The All-Star Game will be played on July 15 at Target Field in Minneapolis.
