2012 NL All-Star Voting: Ryan Braun Back In NL Outfield Spot

There are just a bit more than two days remaining in All-Star voting — it ends at 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday — and a close NL outfield race now has a new man in third place, Ryan Braun. Braun had fallen out of the third spot last week, replaced by Melky Cabrera, but the 2011 NL MVP is now ahead of Cabrera by a close margin of 122,733 votes.

There haven’t been any other changes in the NL leaderboards, and if the current totals hold, seven of the 16 NL teams will be represented among the eight position-player starters (Dodgers, Cardinals, Mets, Giants, Brewers, Reds and Braves).
