Mariners SS Jean Segura in lead for AL Final Vote to All-Star Game

The Mariners shortstop is in the lead to win the Final Vote to join the American League team, as announced Tuesday morning by MLB. He is ahead of second-place Andrew Benintedi of the Boston Red Sox and third-place Giancarlo Stanton of the New York Yankees.

Voting, which is unlimited, ends at 1 p.m. Wednesday.
Segura is hitting .330 with seven home runs, 47 RBIs, 61 runs scored and 14 stolen bases. His 115 hits ranks second in the majors. He previously was an All-Star in 2013 as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers.
If Segura wins, he will be the fourth Mariners All-Star, joining closer Edwin Díaz, outfielder Mitch Haniger and designated hitter Nelson Cruz. Segura is the first Mariners player to ever be included in the Final Vote, which dates back to 2002.
