New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Aramis Ramirez of the Milwaukee Brewers continues to hold a slim lead in a crowded National League race at third base heading into the final days of balloting for the 2014 MLB All-Star Game.

Ramirez's 1,790,777 votes at the last NL update are just over 235,000 more than the New York Mets' David Wright (1,555,717), with San Francisco's Pablo Sandoval (1,406,026) also within striking distance.

Voting will take place through Thursday, with the rosters for the 85th All- Star Game to be revealed on Sunday.

Things also are tight in the NL outfield, with five players in the mix for three starting spots. Reigning league MVP and Pittsburgh Pirates star Andrew McCutchen (3,173,810) owns an advantage of just over 4,000 votes on Milwaukee's Carlos Gomez (3,169,748) for the top position, with Los Angeles Dodgers sensation Yasiel Puig (3,001,907) attempting to fend off late pushes from Miami's Giancarlo Stanton (2,681,019) and the Brewers' Ryan Braun (2,509,770) and remain in third place.

The only other competitive race in the NL is at catcher, where St. Louis' Yadier Molina has garnered 3,100,939 votes to 2,636,640 for Milwaukee's Jonathan Lucroy.

Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki continues to lead all NL players with 3,997,477 votes, with Arizona's Paul Goldschmidt and Philadelphia's Chase Utley also owning commanding leads at first base and second base, respectively.

The 2014 All-Star game will take place July 15 at Minneapolis' Target Field.
