Dan Uggla currently leads fan voting for the starting second baseman position at the 2012 All-Star Game.

Fan voting for the 2012 MLB All-Star game is underway and several Braves are in contention for starting jobs. Voting continues at the stadiums through June 22 and online at MLB.com through June 28. The All-Star Game will take place on July 11 in Kansas City.

Dan Uggla leads all second basemen with over 850,000 votes. Chipper Jones, Brian McCann and Freddie Freeman were all third at their various positions. Jones is a little over 100,000 votes behind New York's David Wright for the lead.

Brian McCann is nearly 400,000 votes behind St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina so his fans have some work to do over the latter part of this month. Freddie Freeman is facing a similar challenge as he trails the Reds' Joey Votto by a large margin for the starting nod at first base.

Other notable Braves on the list include Jason Heyward and Michael Bourn who are seventh and eighth among National League outfielders. Martin Prado is the glaring omission from the leaderboard despite leading the Braves in most offensive categories.
