SAN FRANCISCO -- A trio of Padres ranked among the top 10 at their respective positions in the latest All-Star Game voting update released Tuesday, though none of them appeared close to becoming a serious candidate in the election.

VOTE NOW: Google MLB All-Star Ballot

Third baseman Manny Machado garnered the most votes and occupied the highest position in the balloting among Padres players. Machado ranked sixth among National League third basemen with 118,244 votes. However, that was far behind the league's leading vote-getter at the position, Colorado's Nolan Arenado (783,684).

The status of Padres rookie Fernando Tatis Jr. was similar to Machado's. Tatis occupied seventh place among shortstops with 108,680 votes -- no comparison to the leader, Chicago's Javier Baez (861,496).

San Diego first baseman Eric Hosmer had 85,256 votes, eighth-best in the balloting and well behind the leader, Pittsburgh's Josh Bell (621,915).

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 1 p.m. PT on Friday, June 21.

The top three vote-getters at each position (including nine outfielders) per league will move on to "The Starters Election," which begins at 9 a.m. PT on Wednesday, June 26. The votes will reset for a 28-hour voting window that ends at 1 p.m. PT on Thursday, June 27. Starters for the 2019 Midsummer Classic will be unveiled on ESPN that night at 4 PT. The pitchers and reserves will be announced on Sunday, June 30, at 2:30 p.m. PT.

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.
