Puig has galvanized what was a last-place Dodgers team since his arrival on June 3, hitting .394 with eight home runs and 19 RBIs through 35 games.
Along with first baseman Gonzalez, Puig was looking to become the second Dodgers player to win the final-spot fan vote. Nomar Garciaparra won the spot in 2006.
Gonzalez leads the Dodgers in almost every major offensive category, including home runs (14), RBIs (58) and runs scored (37).
However, the second-place finish doesn't completely end Puig's All-Star hopes. In 2012, four of the five Final Vote candidates made the team as injury replacements.
