          Electrifying former Chattanooga Lookout and current Dodgers sensation Yasiel Puig is one of five players up for the final spot on the National League All-Star roster, after failing to make the squad as a starter or reserve.
          In just 30 games, Puig is simply crushing it, with a .420 batting average, 50 hits, 8 home runs and 19 RBI. He could very well be a shoo-in to win that final vote.
          Major League Baseball tweeted that Puig received 842,915 write-in votes to the Midsummer Classic, the most since former Pittsburgh Pirates infielder Freddy Sanchez totaled 856,685 in 2006.
          Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman is also up for the final spot vote. Atlanta closer Craig Kimbrel is the lone Braves on the National League roster.
