PITTSBURGH -- David Wright was the only Met in the top five at his position in the latest All-Star balloting update, and the third baseman has a chance to be his team's lone representative at the 2014 Midsummer Classic.

If that ends up being the case, it will be the first time the Mets send just one player to the All-Star Game since 2003, when Armando Benitez was the club's sole representative on the National League roster.

Wright, a seven-time All-Star, entered Thursday hitting .278 with six homers, 40 RBIs and a .729 OPS this season. He sits in second place in the voting for third basemen, trailing the Brewers' Aramis Ramirez by just 19,007 votes.

Fans can cast their votes for starters at MLB.com -- online or on a mobile device -- using the 2014 All-Star Game MLB.com Ballot Sponsored by Experian until Thursday, July 3, at 11:59 p.m. ET. The 2014 All-Star Game will be played at Target Field on Tuesday, July 15 on FOX.
