MLB All-Star Rosters 2012: Bryce Harper Finishes 3rd In National League Final Vote

Despite a furious social media campaign, Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper will not be going to this year's MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City.

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder and 2011 World Series MVP David Freese was voted to the final spot on the National League roster for the July 10 exhibition, while Harper placed third behind Freese and Atlanta Braves outfielder Michael Bourn. Arizona second baseman Aaron Hill brought up the rear in the NL vote.

Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish won the American League final vote, beating Jake Peavy of the White Sox, Baltimore's Jason Hammel, Tampa Bay's Jonathan Broxton, and Los Angeles' Ernesto Frieri.

Voting for the final spot on the American League and National League rosters had been conducted at MLB.com since Sunday. MLB also allowed fans to cast votes on Twitter between 12 p.m. and 4 pm. Thursday, when voting was closed.
