MLB National League All-Star ballot released
Wednesday May 27th, 2015

Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper leads all National League players in All-Star balloting, according to data released by Major League Baseball on Wednesday

Harper has 1.1 million votes, just over 3,000 more than St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter

Harper was an All-Star in his first two seasons in the league but was not selected for the team last season after batting .244 with a .682 OPS in the first half. He is currently batting .331 and leading the majors with 17 home runs and 42 RBIs. He also leads the majors in walks, runs, on-base percentage and slugging. 

Cincinnati will host the All-Star Game this year but no Reds are currently leading the voting at their positions. Shortstop Zack Cozart is the closest.

Cardinals 1B Matt Adams likely headed for DL with quad strain

Wednesday was the first time MLB released an update on the NL balloting. The full voting results can be found below.

Fans do not choose the pitchers for the All-Star team.

The next NL voting update will be released on June 2.
