Nationals superstar Bryce Harper continues to lead the way with the most votes, tallying over two million.
The Nationals infield also stands out in the voting results. Ryan Zimmerman has rebounded this season and turned into one of the top hitters in the league and Daniel Murphy continues to play at an elite level.
Zimmerman is pacing all first basemen with over one million votes. The 32-year-old leads the N.L. in batting average (.365) and OPS (1.105), is third in home runs (17) and sixth in RBIs (49). With a month until the All-Star Break, Zimemrman has already surpassed his 2016 season totals in both RBIs and HRs.
Murphy, like Zimmerman, leads his position with 1.7 million votes, over 500,000 votes more than Javier Baez of the Cubs. Murphy ranks fourth in the N.L. in hits (77) and eigth in doubles (17).
Trea Turner, Anthony Rendon, and Matt Wieters are all in the top five and can still make an All-star appearance with two weeks remaining in the voting period.
The next NL voting update will be on Monday, June 19th and the voting polls officially close on June 29th. Don't be surprised if much of the Nats starting lineup is a part of that final decision.
The 2017 MLB All-Star Game takes place on July 11 at Marlins Park in Miami.
