2014 MLB All-Star Game: Troy Tulowitzki finishes as top NL vote-getter, will start at SS

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Tulo is the lone Rockie to be voted into the All-Star Game by the fans.

Rockies star Troy Tulowitzki will start at shortstop for the National League All-Star team after finishing as the league's top overall vote-getter.

Tulowitzki, 29, is an All-Star for the fourth time -- and now a three-time starter -- after leading the league in all three triple-slash categories with a .350/.441/.608 line entering Sunday. Tulo is, rather unsurprisingly because of the Rockies' awful play over the last month and a half, starting to come up in media-initiated trade rumors after a first half that has to be considered successful beyond anybody's expectations. Tulowitzki has slowed down of late but still has 18 home runs and has been one of the few key Colorado regulars to stay off of the DL to this point (insert obligatory knock-on-wood comment here).

Things have not been fun for fans of the purple pinstripers, but it should be at least somewhat of a good time watching their shortstop -- the best in the game -- first captain the NL Home Run Derby squad before taking the field with the game's elite the following night.

Here is the full NL non-pitcher starting lineup, as voted for by the fans:

1B: Paul Goldschmidt, Diamondbacks
2B: Chase Utley, Phillies
SS: Troy Tulowitzki, Rockies
3B: Aramis Ramirez, Brewers
OF: Andrew McCutchen, Pirates
OF: Carlos Gomez, Brewers
OF: Yasiel Puig, Dodgers
C: Yadier Molina, Cardinals
