Adam LaRoche of the Washington Nationals ranks fifth in all-star voting among first basemen.
Last week, the MLB released the first standings for voting for the 2012 All-Star Game to be played July 10 in Kansas City. Despite a huge amount of injuries to position players through the season so far, one Nationals player has found himself ranked among the best in all-star voting.
Adam LaRoche currently ranks fifth among first basemen in voting with 331,173 votes. He has a very tall task ahead of him if he wants to start, as Joey Votto holds first place by a wide margin with 1.3 million votes.
You can vote for the All-Star Game at the official online ballot up to 25 times per email address.
