Upton was in seventh place after the last update, but flip-flopped with Jason Heyward of the St. Louis Cardinals who now holds that spot.
He is the Padres’ triple-crown leader, leading the team in batting average (.272), home runs (14) and RBIs (46), while also leading the club with 15 stolen bases.
No other Padre was listed in the voting update, although Derek Norris was in the top five for catchers through the first couple updates.
Norris still has a chance to be voted in as a reserve, along with pitchers James Shields, Brandon Maurer and Craig Kimbrel, who the fans do not vote on.
Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper leads all National League outfielders, and players, with 11,363,949 votes.
The Cardinals lead all National League teams with three players (Matt Holliday, Matt Carpenter and Jhonny Peralta) currently slated to start.
The All-Star game starters will be announced this Sunday at 4:30 p.m. on ESPN, while reserves and Final Vote candidates will be announced the next day at 4 p.m. on ESPN as well.
