Wright, Gomez surge in latest NL All-Star vote

The Sports NetworkJune 9, 2014 

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki continues to lead all National League players in balloting for the 2014 MLB All-Star Game, though teammate Nolan Arenado is no longer the top vote-getter at third base in the latest results released Monday.

David Wright of the New York Mets has surpassed Arenado, currently on the disabled list with a fractured finger, for first place at third base. Wright, bidding for his seventh career starting nod, has accrued 859,082 votes to Arenado's 766,364.

Milwaukee's Carlos Gomez also saw a jump in this week's rankings, vaulting two spots to the third and final starting spot in the outfield. His lead over Pittsburgh's Andrew McCutchen is presently less than 1,700 votes, however.

Los Angeles' Yasiel Puig and Miami's Giancarlo Stanton currently occupy the top two positions in the outfield.

With 2,007,202 total votes, Tulowitzki still owns a massive lead over San Francisco's Brandon Crawford (656,719) at shortstop, with Philadelphia's Chase Utley (1,342,480) and the Dodgers' Adrian Gonzalez (888,906) still in front at second base and first base, respectively.

Arizona's Paul Goldschmidt remains within striking distance of Gonzalez, trailing the Los Angeles slugger by just over 100,000 votes.

At catcher, St. Louis' Yadier Molina has compiled 1,621,944 votes to maintain a comfortable lead over the Giants' Buster Posey.

The All-Star Game is scheduled for July 15 at Target Field in Minneapolis, with balloting to conclude on July 3.
