The Cubs are not winning at a blistering pace in 2017, and consequently, their fans are not voting as much like last season when they helped elect seven Cubs players into the 2016 All-Star game. As of Monday afternoon, third baseman Kris Bryant will be the only Cubs starter at the 2017 All-Star game in Miami on July 11.

In 2017, Bryant is batting .259 with 16 homers, 31 RBI, and .393 on-base percentage.

However, remember that Cubs manager Joe Maddon will be managing the game and can make a decision on some of the bench players to be added to the summer classic like Anthony Rizzo and others.

Willson Contreras is currently second in voting with catchers, Anthony Rizzo is second vote-getter at first base, Javier Baez is second-best vote-getter at second base, and Addison Russell is getting the third highest votes for the shortstop category.

In the outfield, Jason Heyward is fourth overall for votes, Ben Zobrist is fifth overall and Kyle Schwarber is voted eighth highest despite currently being demoted in Triple-A Iowa.

The starting roster for the All-Star game will be announced at 6 p.m. Sunday.
