Andrus finishes 4th in AL Final Vote

MLB.com

Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus, whose wife, Cori, gave birth to Elvis Emilio on Thursday morning, finished fourth in the American League balloting for the Esurance MLB All-Star Game Final Vote.

Two third basemen won the Final Vote for the first time in the competition's 16-year history, and both of them did so in distinct fashion. Justin Turner of the Dodgers set an all-time record with 20.8 million votes, and Mike Moustakas (15.6 million votes) of the Royals became the second player to win the competition two times. They are now officially on the rosters for the 88th All-Star Game presented by Mastercard on Tuesday at Marlins Park.
