Anthony Rendon, Trea Turner and Matt Wieters are all in fourth place at their respective positions as the National League East-leading Nats continue their strong showing on the ballot.
Harper continues to lead the field in total votes even as his overall numbers have dipped a bit during a recent slump. Still, he is putting together an excellent season, with 15 home runs and a 1.044 OPS entering Monday.
A week after overtaking Chicago's Anthony Rizzo for the top spot, Zimmerman has extended his lead this week as he continues what has been a strong bounce-back season. Murphy is going for his second consecutive All-Star Game bid, but his first career start.
