2012 MLB All-Star Game Voting: David Wright Still Leads In 3B National League Balloting

New York Mets third baseman David Wright now has a comfortable lead in National League 2012 MLB All-Star Game voting at his position. Wright has 2,687,818 votes after the latest update.

Here's how things look behind Wright:

Pablo Sandoval, Giants: 2,223,269
David Freese, Cardinals: 2,064,351
Chipper Jones, Braves: 1,958,447
Placido Polanco, Phillies: 1,236,757

Wright is leading the league in batting average .358. Wright's batting average has been aided by his current 15-game hitting streak, which is the longest current streak in MLB. With this latest voting update, it seems that Wright is almost certainly a lock to start for the NL.

Fans have until 11:59 p.m. on June 28 to cast their votes (up to 25 times) for the All-Star game, and can vote online or via mobile device.

All-Star squads will be announced on Sunday during the 2012 MLB All-Star Game Selection Show broadcast on TBS (1 p.m.). The All-Star game itself will be played on July 10 in Kansas City at Kauffman Stadium.
