Miami Marlins rightfielder Giancarlo Stanton jumped two spots among outfielders in the National League All-Star game voting, putting him behind only Washington Nationals rightfielder Bryce Harper in the latest update released on Tuesday.

The discussion of the NL voting has been much more subdued than the AL voting, where the Kansas City Royals have had an unusually high number of players leading their respective positions since voting began. In response, Major League Baseball canceled more than 60 million votes last week.

Harper leads all NL players with 9,224,370 votes. Stanton has 4,824,989 votes and St. Louis Cardinals leftfielder Matt Holliday is third among NL outfielders with 4,716,941 votes.

The leaders at the other NL positions remain unchanged from last week: San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey, Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, Miami Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon, shortstop Jhonny Peralta and St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter.
