The 28-year-old Seattle shortstop was batting.329 and ranked second in the majors with 116 hits.

Segura is having a wildly successful season for a talented Mariners team that is in the hunt for first place in the American League West.

For the eight players not selected in the Final Vote, the All-Star dream is not officially over.

The Mariners made a big push to get Segura a ticket to Nationals Park for next week's All-Star activities after he was named one of five AL candidates for the Final Vote on Sunday.
