SAN DIEGO -- Despite their impressive offensive surge this month, several Padres remain on the outside looking in on the All-Star ballot, after Major League Baseball unveiled its final voting update Monday afternoon.
Wil Myers -- who is putting forth a June performance that could earn him consideration for NL Player of the Month -- was not among the top five vote-getters at first base. Meanwhile, Matt Kemp and Jon Jay didn't factor into the top 15 outfielders on the ballot.
All-Star rosters will be unveiled on Tuesday, July 5.

Although Myers trails by a wide margin in voting, he appears to be a favorite to represent the Padres at their hometown All-Star Game as a reserve. He's batting .323/.404/.742 this month while tying a Padres franchise record with 10 June homers. For the season, Myers is hitting .282 and leads the team with 17 homers.
One long ball behind Myers is Kemp, who is batting .337 this month. Jay, meanwhile, is currently battling a forearm injury, but leads the National League with 24 doubles and is hitting .296 and playing a steady center field.
