Adrian Gonzalez leads National League first basemen in All-Star balloting.

Take that, Freddie Freeman!

Adrian Gonzalez is the only Dodgers position player leading the National League in all-star votes at his position, according to preliminary ballot results released today by MLB.

Gonzalez leads Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman — who edged Yasiel Puig for an All-Star nod in an online fan vote last year – by more than 40,000 votes as of this morning’s announcement.

Dee Gordon is the next-highest ranking Dodger at his position, but trails Philadelphia’s Chase Utley by more than 200,000 votes at second base. Juan Uribe ranks fourth among National League third baseman, Hanley Ramirez ranks fourth among NL shortstops, and Puig ranks fifth among NL outfielders. He trails Colorado’s Charlie Blackmon, Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen, Milwaukee’s Ryan Braun and Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton among NL outfielders.

The leading vote-getter at each position starts the annual All-Star Game at Target Field in July.
