Seager, Dodgers hope to get All-Star vote

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers fans have their work cut out to vote shortstop Corey Seager into the starting lineup for the 2017 MLB All-Star Game presented by MasterCard.

Last year's starting National League shortstop was Addison Russell of the Chicago Cubs, whose fans voted five Cubs into the starting lineup through the Esurance MLB All-Star Game Ballot.
