AL leaders hold firm in latest round of All-Star voting

  • June 22, 2014 - 10:05 PM

Only one position in the American League starting lineup for the All-Star Game seems to be in question, with most of the leaders holding firm in the latest round of fan voting, announced Sunday.

The tightest race is for the third outfield spot, with Toronto’s Melky Cabrera leading Oakland’s Yoenis Cespedes by a little more than 160,000 votes.

At the other spots, the leaders have held firm. That includes Baltimore’s Matt Wieters at catcher. Wieters will miss the July 15 game at Target Field — and the rest of the season — because of Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery.

Voting ends July 3.
