The Boston Red Sox outfielder fell short in the MLB All-Star Game final vote, coming in second to Seattle Mariners shortstop Jean Segura.

Aguilar and Segura were announced as the winners of Major League Baseball's Final Vote during Wednesday's edition of MLB Network Tonight. No totals were given for Benintendi. Since the All-Star Final Vote began in 2002, Aguilar is now the third Brewers player to win the competition, following Geoff Jenkins (2003) and Corey Hart (2008).

Mariners shortstop Jean Segura is headed to his second career All-Star Game.

For the eight players not selected in the Final Vote, the All-Star dream is not officially over.

There may be some more substitutions on the All-Star rosters between now and the game next Tuesday, but there will be no more straight additions now that the final vote is in. Through his first 85 games, he's slashed.329/.356/.467 with seven home runs and 47 RBI.

San Francisco Giants first baseman Brandon Belt finished second in the NL balloting, followed by Max Muncy of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Trea Turner of the Washington Nationals and Matt Carpenter of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Andrew Benintendi will get some time off during the All-Star break next week.

Segura is having a wildly successful season for a talented Mariners team that is in the hunt for first place in the American League West. The 24 foreign-born players include players from Venezuela (8), Puerto Rico (6), the Dominican Republic (4), Cuba (2), Curacao (2), Canada (1) and South Korea (1).
