Carlos Gomez, Aramis Ramirez Still Lead All-Star Voting

With just a couple of days left in the voting, a pair of Milwaukee Brewers continue to lead in the race for starting spots in the All-Star Game, set for July 15 in Minneapolis.

Center fielder Carlos Gomez is second in voting for National League outfielders, trailing only 2013 NL MVP Andrew McCutchen of the Pittsburgh Pirates and leading Los Angeles Dodgers sensation Yasiel Puig.

Gomez, who made his first All-Star appearance last year as a reserve, has 3,169,748 votes in results released Tuesday afternoon.

Voting will continue at MLB.com through 10:59 p.m. Central on Thursday and the All-Star Game selection show is set for Sunday at 6 p.m. Central on ESPN.

McCutchen has a little more than a 4,000-vote lead on Gomez, with Puig having 3,001,907 votes.

Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins is fourth with 2,681,019 and Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun is fifth with 2,509,770.

Milwaukee left fielder Khris Davis continues a strong late surge—as do many of the Brewers—moving up to seventh place with 1,457,407 votes.

Meanwhile, Ramirez has stretched his lead at third base to more than 235,000 votes over David Wright of the New York Mets. Ramirez has been selected on 1,790,777 ballots, while Wright has 1,555,717.

Pablo Sandoval of the San Francisco Giants (1,406,026), Matt Carpenter of the St. Louis Cardinals (1,323,021) and Todd Frazier of the Cincinnati Reds (1,224,931) are all within striking distance of the starting spot.

Catcher Jonathan Lucroy has cut the lead of Cardinals backstop Yadiel Molina by more than half since last week and is within 465,000 votes of Molina.

Molina has 3,100,939 votes and Lucroy is second with 2,636,640.

Other Brewers have seen their vote totals surge as the campaign to elect Gomez and Lucroy gained steam.

Mark Reynolds is in second place at first base, but is more than 1.15 million votes behind leader Paul Goldschmidt of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Jean Segura is second at shortstop, more than 2.2 million in back of Troy Tulowitzki of the Colorado Rockies.

Rickie Weeks, meanwhile, is fourth among NL second basemen with 1,127,907 votes. Chase Utley of the Philadelphia Phillies has the lead with 2,436,143 votes.

The Brewers haven’t had two starters voted into an All-Star Game since Prince Fielder and Weeks started for the National League in 2011.
