Rockies trio in mix to start All-Star Game
DENVER -- Tuesday's update on voting via the 2015 Esurance MLB All-Star Game Ballot revealed upward movement for Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado.
Arenado picked up nearly 270,000 votes and moved up one spot since last Wednesday's update. He's currently fourth among National League third basemen after passing the Mets' David Wright, but Arenado still trails the Cardinals' Matt Carpenter by nearly 1.4 million votes.
Two other Rockies, meanwhile, dropped in the voting. Troy Tulowitzki fell from third to fourth among NL shortstops, and the injured Corey Dickerson slid from 10th to 13th among NL outfielders. The next NL voting update will be released on June 9.
