Jesus Aguilar and Jean Segura win the Final Vote

Which two players deserve your Final Vote for the 2018 MLB All Star Game

San Francisco Giants first baseman Brandon Belt finished second in the NL balloting, followed by Max Muncy of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Trea Turner of the Washington Nationals and Matt Carpenter of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Major League Baseball released the results of online balloting for the last slot in each league Wednesday night, with Aguilar drawing 20.2 million votes to secure his first All-Star selection.

Aguilar, 28, entered Wednesday night hitting.302 with the National League lead in home runs (23), slugging percentage (.631) and OPS (1.000) for the 55-37 Brewers. The 28-year-old native of the Dominican Republic was followed in the AL Final Vote by Andrew Benintendi of the Boston Red Sox, Giancarlo Stanton of the New York Yankees, Eddie Rosario of the Minnesota Twins and Andrelton Simmons of the Los Angeles Angels. That's excellent production for any player, let alone a shortstop.

In December, she eerily told Asahi Shimbun: "I have worked hard to help patients die in peace, so I was shocked by the incidents". Former colleagues said they were shocked to learn that Kuboki, who started working at the hospital in 2015, had been arrested.

As for Segura, the Mariners infielder is in the midst of a career year at the plate. By comparison, Segura registered 11 homers and 45 RBI in 125 games a season ago. That's especially the case given the suspension of Robinson Cano for Seattle.

Segura will be Seattle's fourth All-Star, joining designated hitter Nelson Cruz, outfielder Mitch Haniger and closer Edwin Diaz.

The Mariners made a big push to get Segura a ticket to Nationals Park for next week's All-Star activities after he was named one of five AL candidates for the Final Vote on Sunday. A handful of these deserving could still be added in the coming days.
