Arenado was 600,000 votes behind Bryant at the end of Phase 1 voting on Sunday before rallying past Bryant and Turner. This will be Arenado’s sixth All-Star appearance. Reserves for the game on Tuesday, July 13th from Coors Field in Colorado.
Arenado returned to Corrs Field on Thursday night, his first appearance since being traded by the Rockies this offseason. The Cardinals lost 5-2.
