Brewers’ Aguilar headed to All-Star game after winning NL ‘Final Vote’

Mariners SS Jean Segura might be an All Star if each MLB team didn't get a representative

Mariners SS Jean Segura might be an All Star if each MLB team didn't get a representative

Major League Baseball released the results of online balloting for the last slot in each league Wednesday night, with Aguilar drawing 20.2 million votes to secure his first All-Star selection.

Seattle shortstop Jean Segura won the American League Final Vote and was added to the All-Star Game roster.

The 28-year-old Seattle shortstop was batting.329 and ranked second in the majors with 116 hits.

Segura in the Final Vote beat out Andrew Benintendi of the Red Sox, Eddie Rosario of the Twins, Andrelton Simmons of the Angels, and Giancarlo Stanton of the Yankees.

San Francisco Giants first baseman Brandon Belt finished second in the NL balloting, followed by Max Muncy of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Trea Turner of the Washington Nationals and Matt Carpenter of the St. Louis Cardinals. Aguilar has not only played his way into an All-Star selection, he's also firmly in the MVP conversation as well based on his production so far. It's also well deserved after Segura's superb first half helped to anchor the Mariners infield and offense.

Gazza was of course one of the star players the last time England played in an World Cup semi-final back in 1990. The victor advances to Sunday's final against France or Belgium, which also will be at Luzkniki Stadium.

This will be Segura's second All-Star appearance. That's especially the case given the suspension of Robinson Cano for Seattle.

For the eight players not selected in the Final Vote, the All-Star dream is not officially over.

The All-Star Game is on Tuesday, July 17 at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.

With the new All-Star appointments, there are now 28 first-time All-Stars (12 AL, 16 NL), 29 players (16 AL, 13 NL) age 27-or-younger and 24 foreign-born players (15 AL, 9 NL) on the 2018 All-Star rosters.
