Posey, Crawford Leading in First Round of All-Star Voting

SAN FRANCISCO -- Fans across the country have noticed Brandon Crawford's ridiculous hot streak. 

Crawford, hitting .439 since May 1, was well ahead of the field when the first round of All-Star voting results were released Monday morning. With 466,021 votes, he's more than doubling the total of Dansby Swanson. Addison Russell and Trea Turner are also far behind of Crawford, who is batting .338 and seeking to make his second All-Star team. 

The Giants have one other player in position to start, but that's a closer race. Buster Posey (281,331) is edging Willson Contreras (259,427) of the Cubs through one round of voting. Kurt Suzuki of the Braves is also within 60,000 votes of Posey. 

Braves fans have clearly responded to their team's surprising start. Freddie Freeman leads all players with 633,342 votes, with Brandon Belt a distant third at first base. Ozzie Albies is the leading vote getter at second base; Joe Panik is fifth. Nolan Arenado would round out the infield if the game were played today. 

Bryce Harper, who will host the game at Nationals Park, Nick Markakis, and Matt Kemp lead the field of outfielders. The Giants do not have an outfielder in the top 15. 

The next round of results will be released Monday, June 18th.
