AL All-Star Voting Update: Adrian Gonzalez Breaks Yankees' Infield Dominance

The American League All-Star voting update was released on Tuesday, and here are the players in first and second place for each position, with the number of votes in parentheses:

C
Russell Martin (2,226,797)
Alex Avila (1,730,511)

1B
Adrian Gonzalez (3,017, 960)
Mark Teixeira (2,407,665)

2B
Robinson Cano (3,664,498)
Dustin Pedroia (2,239,172)

SS
Derek Jeter (2,654,040)
Asdrubal Cabrera (2,242,157)

3B
Alex Rodriguez (2,876,537)
Adrian Beltre (2,307,380)

DH
David Ortiz (3,116,578)
Michael Young (1,760,195)

OF
Jose Bautista (4,156,940)
Curtis Granderson (3,473,227)
Josh Hamilton (2,400,408)
Jacoby Ellsbury (2,249,323)
Carl Crawford (1,789,097)
Ichiro Suzuki (1,537,101)

The Yankees, Red Sox, and Rangers all have players in the top five of each position. The Yankees also have three pitchers leading in the voting for pitchers, even though such a thing does not exist.

The race to watch is probably Jeter versus Cabrera, as Jeter is a) broken and b) not as good as Cabrera this year, so it will be interesting to see how the votes play out down the final stretch of balloting, which ends June 30.
