Cabrera, Kinsler lead fan voting in first balloting update

The first balloting update in the fan voting for the 2014 All-Star Game is out, and it's no surprise that Miguel Cabrera is leading the fan voting at first base (440,407), although he's well behind the overall voting leaders Mike Trout (764K), Jose Bautista (675K) and Derek Jeter (602K). Cabrera has a healthy lead over second-place Albert Pujols (371,193) in the voting for first basemen.

Ian Kinsler (356,244) holds a narrow lead over Robinson Cano (350,293) in the voting at second base.

Victor Martinez (340,827) is third in the voting for designated hitters, behind David Ortiz (501,808) and Nelson Cruz (484,186).

Rookie Nick Castellanos is fifth in the race at third base with 157,768 votes, more than 300,000 fewer than position leader Josh Donaldson of the A's (464,367)

Torii Hunter is sixth among outfielders with 322,736 votes, while Rajai Davis (186,913) and Austin Jackson (175,165) clock in at Nos. 13 and 14, respectively.
