Bellinger, Yelich Top 1 Million Votes In Early MLB All-Star Game NL Ballot

By Barry Janoff

June 11, 2019: Cody Bellinger, outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich have each topped one million votes in the first National League results released by MLB for the 2019 All-Star Game presented by MasterCard.

Berlinger at 1,189,380 and 2018 NL MVP at 1,057,855 are the only two players in either league to date to top one million each in the All-Star Game Ballot presented by Google.

Both players also have a 500,000 lead on the No. 3 outfielder, Ronald Acuna Jr. of the Atlanta Braves, who tallied 518,760 votes.

Fortunately for outfielders, under the new MLB All-Star Game voting system, the top nine outfielders in The Primary voting get to move to the next phase, The Starters Election, which begins on June 26 (Noon ET).

Unfortunately for Bryce Harper, who in March signed a 13-year, $330 million deal with the Philadelphia Phillies, he currently sits at No. 10 among NL outfielders (242,719), albeit fewer than 300 votes behind No. 9 Alex Verdugo of the Dodgers (242,988).

Willson Contreras, catcher for the Chicago Cubs, has the largest lead to date among all players in NL and AL All-Star Game voting: 850,613, with catcher Brian McCann of the Braves at No. 2 (269,963).

However, the top three vote-getters move to next round and only 86,000 votes to date separate catchers from No. 2 through No. 6.

Josh Bell of the Pittsburgh Pirates leads all NL first basemen to date (621,915), Nolan Arenado of the Colorado Rockies leads all third basemen (783,684) Javier Baez of the Cubs leads all shortstops (861,496).

Under new guidelines, the top three vote-getters at each position — including nine outfielders — in each league move from The Primary to The Starters Election.

People can vote in The Primary at MLB.com and all 30 club sites, the MLB At Bat and MLB Ballpark apps up to five times in any 24-hour period.

People in the U.S. and Canada can also vote on Google Search for every position, or up to 17 unique players per day, by searching "MLB Vote" or the names of their favorite players.

Primary voting ends at June 21 (4 PM ET).

Starters for the 2019 All-Star Game will be unveiled on ESPN that night (7 PM ET).

Pitchers and reserves will be on June 30.

The 90th MLB All-Star Game, at Progressive Field in Cleveland, will air nationally Fox on July 9; in Canada by Rogers Sportsnet and RDS; and worldwide by partners in more than 180 countries.
