American League All-Star Game ballot leaders, Yoenis Cespedes overtakes Melky Cabrera


Only four days remain to vote for your favorite players to represent their teams at the All-Star Game and the latest update from the American League features a hotly contested battle for the final outfield spot.

Most of the positions have been locked in for the better part of the last month with Miguel Cabrera from the Detroit Tigers, Robinson Cano from the Seattle Mariners, Derek Jeter from the New York Yankees and Josh Donaldson from the Oakland A’s the leading vote-getters for the infield.

The the outfield is where the action lies as Yoenis Cespedes has a slim margin over Melky Cabrera from the Toronto Blue Jays and Adam Jones from the Baltimore Orioles to join Mike Trout from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and Jose Bautista (vote leader) of the Blue Jays.

Matt Wieters is still the leader at catcher despite the Baltimore Orioles backstop missing most of the first half with an elbow injury that required season-ending Tommy John Surgery so a replacement will be named to fill his spot in the lineup. Nelson Cruz remains the leader at designated hitter in a resurgent season for the Orioles after a PED suspension last year with the Texas Rangers.

The National League leaders will be unveiled on Tuesday.

You can vote for your favorite players from the American and National league until Thursday, July 3, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

The 2014 AL and NL All-Star teams will be unveiled on the All-Star Selection Show on ESPN on July 6 at 7 p.m. ET.
