Segura third among NL shortstops in All-Star bid
Braun, on DL with hand injury, ranks fourth in pool of outfielders
CINCINNATI -- None of the Brewers' All-Star Game hopefuls saw movement when the latest round of balloting results were unveiled Sunday.
Jean Segura remained third among National League shortstops, though he probably has the best chance because of Troy Tulowitzki's injury. Ryan Braun remained fourth among outfielders in the same week he was placed on the disabled list with a right hand injury, and Jonathan Lucroy remained fourth among NL catchers.
At shortstop, Tulowitzki has 2,443,772 votes, nearly double the total of any of his competitors -- Brandon Crawford of the Giants (1,293,476), Segura (1,188,317) and Pete Kozma of the Cardinals (905,976). But Tulowitzki sustained a broken right rib diving for a grounder in the Rockies' loss to the Nationals on Thursday and will miss 4-6 weeks, which means it's very unlikely that he'll be ready for the All-Star Game.
If Tulowitzki is voted to start but is unable to play, the nod would go to the top vote-getter on the players' ballot. That is how Braun cracked the NL's starting lineup last year after an injury to Dodgers star Matt Kemp.
