Despite owning the most wins in the National League, the Milwaukee Brewers will send just three players on the initial roster for the MLB All-Star Game in Washington, D.C., July 17.

The MLB announced Sunday that Milwaukee outfielders Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich as well as reliever Josh Hader were selected for the NL roster, all three being elected via the players' ballot and not the fan vote. 

Cain, who returned from the DL for Sunday's 10-3 win against Atlanta, leads the Crew in on-base percentage, and Yelich has the club's most hits and runs scored. Hader has racked up 83 strikeouts, the most of any relief pitcher in the MLB.  

Meanwhile, Brewers first baseman Jesús Aguilar has been named one of five candidates for the MLB All-Star Game's final vote amid a breakout 2018 campaign.  

Aguilar is going up against Washington shortstop Trea Turner, as well as fellow first basemen   San Francisco's Brandon Belt, St. Louis' Matt Carpenter and Los Angeles Dodger Max Muncy for the final roster slot. 

 Aguilar's 22 home runs on the season tie for most in the NL as of Monday.  

Fans can vote for Aguilar as many times as they want at this link. The voting ends Wednesday at 3 p.m.
