Matt Kemp Absent From Lineup, But Not Forgotten To ASG Voters

Wow. Matt Kemp leads early NL All-Star voting, despite the fact that he's on the DL for another long stint:

The early All-Star results are in and the ballot boxes have been stuffed in a way you might expect. After scorching hot starts to their seasons, Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers (2.58 million votes) and Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers (1.91 million) lead their respective leagues in voting.

Balloting remains open until June 28 and it'll be interesting to see how Kemp's numbers hold (or don't) now that he's again on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

Vote early! Vote often! And vote #AJ2KC!
