2012 All-Star Voting: Dan Uggla Widens Lead, Freddie Freeman Second

MLB.com released the latest results of the fan voting for the 2012 MLB All-Star Game and Dan Uggla saw his lead widen over second place Brandon Phillips. Uggla has over 2 million votes and leads Phillips by nearly 800,000 votes.

Chipper Jones remains in third place behind New York Mets third baseman David Wright and San Francisco's Pablo Sandoval. Wright's lead over Jones is some 400,000 votes. Freddie Freeman is second among National League first basemen but trails Joey Votto by over a million votes.

Brian McCann is fourth among N.L. catchers while Jason Heyward is 12th and Martin Prado 14th among outfielders. Closer Craig Kimbrel figures to be a strong candidate to make the team out of the bullpen and Brandon Beachy would have had a strong case if not for his current elbow injury.

Fans can vote up to 25 times for their favorite player with voting ending on June 28.
