Rockies' Troy Tulowitzki Still Leading Voter-Getter At Short In NL

Voting results for the 2011 MLB All-Star Game keeps coming in each week, and the Colorado Rockies' Troy Tulowitzki is still tops at the shortstop position in the National League. Here is how the voting has broken down so far:

SHORTSTOP
Troy Tulowitzki, Rockies: 2,385,991
Jose Reyes, Mets: 1,972,820
Jimmy Rollins, Phillies: 1,354,896
Alex Gonzalez, Braves: 928,992
Yuniesky Betancourt, Brewers: 860,163

Tulowitzki holds a 413,171-vote lead over Jose Reyes of the Mets, a dwindling lead but likely not to be erased (minus ballot-stuffing).

Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez is close to breaking one million votes, currently at 944,666, but he is No. 12 among NL outfielders. Milwaukee's Ryan Braun cracked three million votes and leads all NL outfielders.

The forearm injury that will keep Pujols out for the next 4-to-6 weeks will likely impact the starter at 1B in the All-Star Game. Pujols currently leads that vote with over 2.8 million votes, and should he stay atop that the starter will be the player who receives the most votes by the players (minus the injured player).
