The Dodgers’ Adrian Gonzalez leads all National League first basemen in All-Star balloting. Gonzalez has 929,016 votes as of this morning. Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo is second, with 489,255.
Gonzalez leads all qualifying MLB first basemen in batting average (.348), slugging percentage (.646) and OPS (1.071). His 35 RBIs are second only to Paul Goldschmidt of Arizona.
If he wins the fan vote, he’ll be the first Dodgers first baseman to do so since Steve Garvey (1974-80).
MLB only releases the top five vote-getters at every position, except the outfield. Only second baseman Howie Kendrick (third), and outfielders Joc Pederson (sixth) and Yasiel Puig (13th) showed up on Wednesday’s list of leading vote-getters.
