Major League baseball released its first all-star voting update on Wednesday and despite being suspended the final 65 games last season due to
his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal, Milwaukee Brewers rightfielder Ryan Braun is among the league leaders in outfield voting.
Braun ranked third among National League outfielders with 446,780 votes. He’s hitting .315 with seven home runs and 23 runs batted in. But he has also missed 14 games this season due to injury (strained right oblique).
The top three vote-getters in the outfield will be elected starters for the 85th All-Star Game, which will be played on July 15 at Target Field in Minneapolis.
Three other Brewers were among the league leaders in balloting this year. Aramis Ramirez ranked second among NL third basemen. Catcher Jonathan Lucroy ranked fourth among catchers and Jean Segura is fifth among shortstops.
