Yu Darvish, David Freese lead “Final Vote” balloting

Braves third baseman Chipper Jones had been leading in the NL, but yesterday he was removed from the “Final Vote” ballot after being named the injury replacement for Matt Kemp. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper ranks second to Freese, followed by Braves outfielder Michael Bourn and Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill.
White Sox starter Jake Peavy ranks second to Darvish in the AL, followed by Orioles starter Jason Hammel, Royals reliever Jonathan Broxton, and Angels reliever Ernesto Frieri.
