Miggy continues to lead AL All-Star vote-getters; Orioles close gaps at several spots


It appears the Baltimore Orioles will be the Tigers’ stiffest competition in All-Star Game voting.

First baseman Chris Davis (2,999,094) is chasing Miguel Cabrera (3,277,890) for the overall voting lead among American League players in the third weekly totals announced by Major League Baseball Sunday night. That extended Davis’ lead over Prince Fielder (1,980,129) for the AL starting slot at first base.

Cabrera continues to lead the O’s Manny Machado (1,626,209) by a healthy margin for the starting spot at third base, while Adrian Beltre (1,105,706) and Evan Longoria (898,422) are further behind.

Baltimore’s Adam Jones (2,740,505) leads all vote-getters in the outfield, while teammate Nick Markakis (1,463,392) moves into the third and final starting outfield slot, behind Mike Trout (2,710,115), and ahead of the Tigers’ Torii Hunter (1,425,571), who slides down to fourth. Despite missing a month with a hamstring strain, Austin Jackson (712,623) is 13th among outfielders.

At second base, Detroit’s Omar Infante (872,142) is a distant fourth, behind leader Robinson Cano (2,409,512). At shortstop, Jhonny Peralta (1,322,791) is in third, not far behind leader J.J. Hardy (1,871,010) of the Orioles, and Texas’ Elvis Andrus (1,358,412).

In-stadium voting runs through June 28, while online voting continues until July 4.
