Nationals shortstop Trea Turner will not be an All-Star this year. 

MLB announced Wednesday that Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar won the fan vote for the last National League roster spot for Tuesday’s All-Star Game at National Park. 

Turner, 25, was one of five players in the running for the spot. 

In 2018, Turner is hitting .270/.349/.756 with 11 home runs and 37 RBIs. He also has 22 stolen bases. 

Aguilar received 20,229,498 votes. 

Last year, Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon was in the running for the final spot, but Los Angeles’ Justin Turner edged him out.
