Two members of the Miami Marlins moved up in the balloting for the upcoming All-Star Game which will be held at Marlins Park on July 11.

In the second update of the online game ballot, outfielders Marcell Ozuna and Giancarlo Stanton both moved up into the top 10 of voting.

In last week’s release, Ozuna wasn’t among the top 20 outfielders to garner votes; this week, he’s up to sixth behind Washington’s Bryce Harper, Colorado’s Charlie Blackmon, Chicago’s Jason Heyward, Chicago’s Ben Zobrist and Atlanta’s Matt Kemp.

Giancarlo Stanton moved up in the second ballot from 12th to a spot behind Ozuna.

Fan voting is online only and goes until just before midnight on June 29. The starters of the 2017 midsummer classic will then be unveiled.

In Tuesday’s American Legaue ballot update, Yankees’ slugger Aaron Judge continued to lead all players in total votes.
