The Seattle Mariners shortstop and Milwaukee Brewers first baseman won the online fan votes for the 32nd and final roster spots on the American League and National League Tre’Quan Smith Jersey teams, respectively.

It was unbelievable, Segura said. I can’t believe all those people around the world, the fans, K.J. Wright Jersey the marketing, the organization, the people in Seattle, my teammates, even Felix [Hernandez] yesterday going around the city trying to get some votes for me. It just feels amazing. It feels special. You come from another country and you see how the people support you around the world, it makes it even more special.

Segura, 28, snagged the last AL spot with 13.6 million votes. He was followed by Boston Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi, New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton, Minnesota Twins outfielder Eddie Rosario and Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons.

The Seattle shortstop was batting .329 and ranked second in the majors with 116 hits. He will join Mariners teammates Nelson Cruz, Edwin Diaz and Mitch Haniger at the All-Star Game. Segura, who made the NL All-Star squad in 2013 with Milwaukee, is the first Seattle player to win the fan voting for the final spot.

The 89th All-Star Game will be held Tuesday at Nationals Park in Washington.

Harris averaged a career-high 10.8 points on 49.1 percent shooting last year for the Nets, his fourth season in the league.

The Mariners are in a commanding wild-card position with a seven-game lead over Oakland, but that doesn’t mean Hernandez is assured of an October start. Under the most likely scenario, Seattle would start Paxton in a wild-card game against Chris Sale at Fenway or Luis Severino at Yankee Stadium. The prospect of an October one-and-done is very real.

But that’s a concern for another day. Hernandez seems invigorated pitching for a Seattle team that’s long on camaraderie and raising the spirits of a playoff-deprived fan base. Long before he laid the foundation for a Cooperstown run, he was just a happy-go-lucky phenom hanging on the advice of Jamie Moyer, Eddie Guardado and the other Seattle veterans. Now he’s the veteran with a year and three months left on a $175 million contract extension, but he’ll never be confused for a clubhouse diva.

And do it for what amounts to a hometown discount.
