Major League Baseball came out with their first National League All-Star Ballot update Wednesday morning as we saw a couple of Rockies leading the way.
Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki leads all National League players in votes with roughly 745,823, putting him well ahead of Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford (218,123) and Braves Andrelton Simmons (207,402). This comes to no surprise as the Rockies shortstop is hitting at a clip of .373/.476/.711 entering tonight’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Rockies second-year gold glove third baseman Nolan Arenado currently leads the race at third base wth 318,111 votes. Nolan would break his left, middle finger last week placing him on the disabled list. He should be back in time for the all-star. He leads Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez (282,843) and Mets David Wright (278,840). Arenado’s incredible 28-game hitting streak put him on the map as the kid is no longer known for his glove.
This may come as a surprise but Charlie Blackmon is having one heck of a 2014 campaign. The beard currently leads all NL outfielders with 549,394 votes, placing him above players like Andrew McCutchen (467,378), Brewers Ryan Braun (446,780), and Giancarlo Stanton (426,228).
