Segura, Aguilar named Final Vote winners for MLB All-Star Game


Seattle Mariners shortstop Jean Segura and Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar won the MLB Final Vote and will represent their respective leagues at the 2018 All-Star Game.

It's Segura's second All-Star selection after representing the National League in 2013, and the first All-Star appearance for Aguilar, who was picked up off waivers by the Brewers in February and is tied for the NL lead in home runs.

"It's going to be my dream come true," Aguilar said, according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com. "It was a lot of stuff; it was three busy days. But we're here. We made it. I just have to say thank you."
