Aguilar, Segura win 2018 Camping World All-Star Final Vote

Rosters now feature 28 first-timers, 24 foreign-born all-stars

Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesús Aguilar and Seattle Mariners shortstop Jean Segura were voted by the fans as the winners of the 2018 Camping World All-Star Final Vote, it was announced earlier this evening on MLB Network's MLB Tonight. Aguilar and Segura earned the final roster spots on the National League and American League All-Star teams through online voting on MLB.com, the 30 Club sites and mobile devices. Now in its 17th season, the All-Star Final Vote has recorded over 845 million votes.

Aguilar drew 20.2 million votes en route to securing his first Midsummer Classic selection. His vote total marked the second-highest total ever in a Final Vote, behind only Justin Turner of the Los Angeles Dodgers (20.8 million in 2017). The 28-year-old native of Venezuela was followed in the NL Final Vote by Brandon Belt of the San Francisco Giants, Max Muncy of the Dodgers, Trea Turner of the host Washington Nationals and Matt Carpenter of the St. Louis Cardinals. Aguilar, who is tied for the NL lead with 23 home runs, joins his teammates Lorenzo Cain, Josh Hader and Christian Yelich as Brewers selected to the NL All-Star roster. Since the All-Star Final Vote began in 2002, Aguilar is now the third Brewers player to win the competition, following Geoff Jenkins (2003) and Corey Hart (2008).
