Miguel Cabrera, Buster Posey lead the pack in early MLB All-Star voting

The early ballots for both the AL and NL are in. Where does your favorite player stand?

Justin K. Aller

The first run of vote totals from the AL and NL All-Star ballots have been released, and the results are... not all that surprising. Many of the usual suspects -- Miguel Cabrera, Joey Votto, Buster Posey -- are in the lead at their respective positions, while others who are off to hot starts in 2013 -- e.g Chris Davis, Justin Upton -- find themselves atop the leaderboard.

The only position that isn't a complete blowout in the American League is shortstop, where Elvis Andrus and J.J. Hardy sit neck and neck. The National League, on the other hand, has several positions up for grabs, including third base and catcher.

There are a few glaring omissions from the list -- Josh Donaldson, Domonic Brown, and James Loney are nowhere to be found, for instance -- but there's still plenty of time for fans to vote them in.

Without further ado, here's the latest totals:
