Tuesday afternoon Major League Baseball released the first results of the fan vote for this year’s All-Star game.

To no surprise, zero members of the Phillies finished in the top five for any of the five infield positions or the top 15 for a spot in the outfield.

Early surprises were Jason Heyward leading among outfielders despite poor results on the field, and weak support for members of the Rockies, despite the team leading the National League.

There’s still plenty of time for fans to get their favorite Phillies player on the field despite a rocky season. Cesar Hernandez, Aaron Altherr, and Tommy Joseph have each shown a glimpse of being All-Star worthy, while Pat Neshek out of the bullpen could be added by the coaching staff.

Here are the early results for the National League all-star roster.
