With a little over a month left in voting for the 2014 MLB All-Star Game, four Braves are among the leaders in their respective positions.

Freddie Freeman is second for first basemen, Evan Gattis and Andrelton Simmons are third for their respective positions of catcher and shortstop and Justin Upton is seventh for outfielders.

Freeman has 308,961 votes to Adrian Gonzalez's 349,762, which is a divide that could easily be closed by fans taking to the polls. Freeman won the fan vote for the last player in 2013, so a second-straight All-Star Game berth could be in order for him.

Troy Tulowitzki has dominated the shortstop race, with 745,823 votes to Simmons' third-place tally of 207,402.

Yadier Molina has probably run away with the starting position of catcher, too, with 640,464 to Gattis' 241,005, who is also behind Buster Posey's 421,100 votes.

Justin Upton is behind Charlie Blackmon, Andrew McCutchen, Ryan Braun, Giancarlo Stanton, Yasiel Puig and Carlos Gomez with 312,574 votes so far.

Polls close on July 3, with the All-Star Game being played in Minneapolis on July 15. Full results of the first round of voting are here.
