Corey Seager rises in All-Star vote as deadline nears

Milwaukee Brewers vs Los Angeles Dodgers
SS 6-22By Jon Weisman

Corey Seager continues to move higher in the National League All-Star team voting, but with barely a week remaining in the balloting, he still has a monster mountain to climb.

Seager passed San Francisco’s Brandon Crawford to move up from fourth place to third among NL shortstops, but the 22-year-old Dodger has less than half of Addison Russell’s vote total, even though Seager’s NL-leading WAR is more than twice as much as Russell’s.

Fan voting ends at 8:59 p.m. June 30 at

Official voting notes:

You may vote in the 2016 Esurance MLB All-Star Game Balloting Program a maximum of thirty-five (35) times between April 24, 2016, and June 30, 2016 (limit of five (5) times during any twenty-four (24) hour period, with that twenty-four (24) hour period to begin as of the time of the first vote; following the expiration of the initial twenty-four (24) hour period, the next twenty-four (24) hour period begins at the time of your next vote).

You can also receive the 2016 Esurance MLB All-Star Game ballot by texting VOTE or VOTA to 89269. In Canada, fans can receive the ballot by texting VOTE to 101010.

Adrian Gonzalez remains in fourth place among NL first baseman, with barely a fourth of position leader Anthony Rizzo of Chicago. As it stands now, the Cubs would have five starters, including all four in the infield.
ASG 6-22


You didn’t show the shortstops. We’re not on that list but I’d be curious to see who is.

OK, I’m an idiot. Or maybe I still need more coffee. Or both. Either way, never mind.
