1B Freeman, RHP Delabar elected to All-Star game
NEW YORK — Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman and Toronto reliever Steve Delabar have won the fan voting for the last spots in the All-Star game.
Freeman's victory means Los Angeles Dodgers sensation Yasiel Puig will not get to play in the July 16 game at Citi Field unless he is added as an injury replacement. Puig is off to a terrific start in his first stint in the majors, but he's only been up for five weeks, leading some to question whether he belongs on the NL team.
Freeman set a record with 19.7 million votes, and Puig was second.
Delabar won with 9.6 million votes. The right-hander is 5-1 with a 1.74 ERA in 37 appearances for the Blue Jays.
Freeman is batting .307 with nine homers and 56 RBIs heading into Atlanta's game against Cincinnati on Thursday night.
