AL All-Star Voting Update Has David Ortiz Passing Michael Young

Last week, in the first update on American League All-Star Game voting, the Yankees had the leaders at six of nine positions, with two Rangers and one Blue Jay. This week? This week, one of those Rangers has fallen off. He hasn't been replaced by a Yankee, but he has been replaced by the next-closest thing.

C Russell Martin 1317557 Joe Mauer 829073
1B Mark Teixeira 1333445 Adrian Gonzalez 1268706
2B Robinson Cano 1930762 Dustin Pedroia 963996
SS Derek Jeter 1454795 Asdrubal Cabrera 1162728
3B Alex Rodriguez 1515818 Adrian Beltre 1224381
OF Jose Bautista 2142867 Ichiro Suzuki 970622
OF Josh Hamilton 1229040 Jacoby Ellsbury 871897
OF Curtis Granderson 1725654 Nelson Cruz 768115
DH David Ortiz 1160590 Michael Young 1033514

In the table above, Yankees players are shown in bold, while Red Sox players are shown in italics. And at the DH slot, we see that David Ortiz has surged past Michael Young, after trailing by about 28,000 votes a week ago. As things currently stand, the two beasts of the East are holding on to seven of nine starting spots.

Which isn't to say that this is wrong, and which isn't to say that this is how things will end up. But this is how things are right now. Voting continues through June 30, and winners will be announced on July 3.

The closest gap is the one between Teixeira and Gonzalez. Also, note that if Ichiro falls short, it will be the first time in his career that he doesn't make the team.
