Justin Turner of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Mike Moustakas of the Kansas City Royals are headed to Miami for the MLB All-Star Game after winning the Final Vote, the league announced Thursday.
Turner received a record 20.8 million votes.
Turner's 3.9 WAR (per FanGraphs; fWAR) leads all Final Vote contenders, and is actually second to only Paul Goldschmidt among all position players in the NL.
In Wednesday's win against Seattle, Moustakas hit a homer, marking the sixth time in his last eight games that he has gone yard.
Meanwhile, Turner defeated Justin Bour of the host Marlins (despite a Ric Flair endorsement), Kris Bryant of the Cubs, Anthony Rendon of the Nationals and Mark Reynolds of the Rockies.
Moustakas defeated shortstops Xander Bogaerts, Didi Gregorius and Elvis Andrus, and Tampa Bay first baseman Logan Morrison.
We all love dingers, and Moustakas' 25 home runs are second in the majors to only Aaron Judge.
The All-Star Game will be played on Tuesday night, July 11 in Miami. Clayton Kershaw, Kenley Jansen, Corey Seager and Cody Bellinger will also represent the Boys in Blue.
A replacement hasn't been named for Kershaw (13-2).
