Rickie Weeks has moved ahead of Brandon Phillips in MLB All-Star voting with just a few days left before voting is cut off on Thursday. This would be Weeks' first ever All-Star Game appearance. Weeks currently leads Phillips by less than 100,000 votes.
The second baseman is currently hitting a career best .290 and has already smacked 14 home runs. He currently leads National League second baseman in homers, hits (92), doubles (20), walks (31), on-base percentage (.360) and slugging percentage (.498). In his past 27 games, he has gotten at least two hits 13 times.
Chase Utley, who started each of the past five All-Star Games, is in third.
The other players leading their positions in voting are Albert Pujols (1B), Troy Tulowitzki (SS), Placido Polanco (3B), Brian McCann (C), Ryan Braun (OF), Lance Berkman (OF) and Matt Kemp (OF). Voting updates for the American League will be released on Tuesday.
