Major League Baseball released its latest voting update Monday afternoon and no Phillies player ranks among the top vote-getters at any position. Phils catcher J.T. Realmuto ranked third among catchers last week, but he fell to fourth with 438,390 votes. He trails the Cubs’ Willson Contreras (1,555,490), the Braves’ Brian McCann (725,484) and the Brewers’ Yasmani Grandal (513,412).

Realmuto is second among all catchers in the Majors in WAR (2.6), according to FanGraphs. Grandal is first (2.8).

Phillies right fielder Bryce Harper is 10th among outfielders with 498,100 votes. The Rockies' Charlie Blackmon is in ninth place with 530,342 votes.

Fans may vote in "The Primary" at MLB.com and all 30 club sites, the MLB At Bat and MLB Ballpark apps up to five times in any 24-hour period. Fans in the U.S. and Canada can also vote on Google Search for every position, or up to 17 unique players per day, by searching "MLB Vote" or the names of their favorite players. Primary voting ends at 4 p.m. ET on Friday.

The top three vote-getters at each position (including nine outfielders) per league will move on to "The Starters Election," which begins at noon ET on Wednesday, June 26. The votes will reset for a 28-hour voting window that ends at 4 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 27. Starters for the 2019 Midsummer Classic will be unveiled on ESPN that night at 7 ET. The pitchers and reserves will be announced on Sunday, June 30, at 5:30 p.m. ET.

Then on Tuesday, July 9, during the 2019 All-Star Game presented by Mastercard, fans may visit MLB.com and the 30 club sites to submit their choices for the Ted Williams Most Valuable Player Award presented by Chevrolet.
