Fan voting underway for MLS All-Star Game; 6 Timbers on ballot

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland Timbers fans, here's your chance to send a Timbers player to the MLS All-Star Game.

Six Timbers players have been selected to appear on the MLS All-Star ballot.

The 10 players on the ballot who have the highest combined votes from three voting methods will be named to the MLS All-Star Fan XI and take on AS Roma in Kansas City on July 31.

Goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts, defender Michael Harrington, midfielders Diego Chara, Diego Valeri and Will Johnson, and forward Darlington Nagbe all have their names on the ballot. A panel of media members picked the 115 players that appear on the ballot, and Timbers owner Merritt Paulson wasn't impressed with their choice to leave another Timbers player off the list.

"Lots of worthy Portland Timber candidates for the all star game, but perplexed why Rodney Wallace is not among our names on the ballot," he tweeted.

Wallace, a midfielder, has four goals so far this season.
