Chase Utley is leading all second basemen with 509,390 votes. Utley’s ballot total thus far makes him the fourth highest overall vote getter behind Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki with 745,823, Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina with 640,464 and Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon with 549,394 votes respectivly.
Unsurprisingly absent from the early ballot update release are the representation of other Phillies position players.
Through 46 games, Utley is batting .333, a career high .936 OPS, with 4 home runs and 22 RBI’s in 2014. Utley’s last All Star Game appearance was in 2010.
