Victorino Wins Final Vote
Shane Victorino won MLB.com’s Final Vote to earn the final roster spot on the National League All-Star team.
He got 9.2 million votes.
Victorino, who is a two-time Final Vote winner, beat Andre Ethier, Todd Helton, Michael Morse and Ian Kennedy.
But will Victorino play?
That remains to be seen. He he has a Grade 1 sprain of his right thumb, which he suffered Sunday in Toronto. Charlie Manuel said yesterday Victorino wouldn’t be able to play for a few days. I imagine if Victorino doesn’t play before the end of the weekend, the Phillies will place him on the DL so he rests up and is ready for the second half.
