Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton snubbed for All-Star Game. Who won Fan Vote?

Mariners SS Jean Segura might be an All Star if each MLB team didn't get a representative

Winning the online balloting for the AL is Mariners shortstop Jean Segura.

The Mariners asked fans to #SendSegura, and send they did.

Both players will now officially join their respective league's All-Star teams for MLB's summer showcase next Tuesday at Nationals Park.

Facebook faces over $650G fine in Britain over data misuse scandal
The tech giant is accused of not properly protecting user data and not sharing how people's data was harvested by others. The fines are based on laws governing the 2013-2014 period when the breaches occurred.

Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar and Seattle Mariners shortstop Jean Segura were selected as Major League Baseball's Final Vote winners in the National League and American League, respectively, on Wednesday night. They distributed #SendSegura shirts, partnered with several local businesses on discounts to promote voting and even held open voting sessions at Safeco Field that saw surprise appearances by injured Mariners Mike Zunino and Hernández and general manager Jerry Dipoto. The Dodgers' Justin Turner had 20.8 million votes in 2017. Now in its 17 season, the All-Star Final Vote has recorded over 845 million votes. Heading into Wednesday's series finale with Miami, the 28-year-old led the National League in homers (23) and slugging percentage (.631) while ranking third in RBI (64). As we've seen in years past, there tends to be a lot of roster shuffling that goes on between the Final Vote announcement and the All-Star Game itself due to injury issues or other reasons.

It's the second All-Star selection for Segura, who first earned the nod with the Milwaukee Brewers in 2013.

Aguilar is now an All-Star for the first time. The 24 foreign-born players include players from Venezuela (8), Puerto Rico (6), the Dominican Republic (4), Cuba (2), Curacao (2), Canada (1) and South Korea (1). FOX Deportes will provide Spanish language coverage in the United States, while ESPN Radio and ESPN Radio Deportes will provide exclusive national radio coverage of the All-Star Game.
