Major League Baseball announced that Dodgers' Justin Turner was voted into the 2017 All-Star game with a record 20.8 million votes edging out reigning National League MVP Kris Bryant for the final spot on the National League's roster for the 2017 All-Star game.

The Cubs are the first major league team to not have a participant in the All-Star game who played in the World Series winner the year before according to ESPN Stats and Info.

In 2017, Bryant is batting .263 with 16 homers, 32 RBI, and .391 on-base percentage.

It's not all bad news for Bryant as he will be able to rest during the break and hopefully have a strong second half of the season for his ballclub.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon will be managing the All-Star game for the second time in his career alongside the only Cubs player representative Wade Davis.
