Los Angeles Dodgers third base­man Justin Turner and Kansas City third base­man Mike Mous­takas have been elected to the All-Star Game in on­line vot­ing for the fi­nal ini­tial ros­ter spots. Cubs third base­man Kris Bryant was se­cond in the NL vote, leav­ing Cubs re­liever Wade Davis as the sole rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the World Se­ries cham­pi­ons at Tues­day’s game in Mi­ami. Davis did not join the Cubs un­til the off­sea­son, after Chicago’s first World Se­ries ti­tle since 1908. The last World Se­ries cham­pion with one All-Star was in 2007, when Al­bert Pu­jols was the only player from the St. Louis Car­di­nals. Turner re­ceived a record 20.8 mil­lion votes, top­ping Fred­die Free­man’s 19.7 mil­lion in 2013, the com­mis­sioner’s of­fice said Thurs­day. Mous­takas, who also won the fi­nal spot vote in 2015, re­ceived 15.6 mil­lion bal­lots. Wash­ing­ton third base­man An­thony Ren­don was third, fol­lowed by Colorado first base­man Mark Reynolds and Mi­ami first base­man Justin Bour, who will com­pete in Mon­day’s Home Run Derby. Bos­ton short­stop Xan­der Bo­gaerts was se­cond in the AL vote, fol­lowed by the Yan­kees short­stop Didi Gre­go­rius, Texas short­stop Elvis An­drus and Tampa Bay first base­man Lo­gan Mor­ri­son. Ad­di­tional All-Stars will be picked for in­jured play­ers.
