American League All-Star voting update: Royals, Royals, and more Royals

93 Comments

It’s time for MLB’s weekly All-Star voting update and on the American League side the Royals continue to dominate.

Kansas City currently has the top vote-getter at seven spots:

Catcher – Salvador Perez
First base – Eric Hosmer
Third base – Mike Moustakas
Shortstop – Alcides Escobar
Outfield – Alex Gordon
Outfield – Lorenzo Cain
Designated Hitter – Kendrys Morales

Second base and the third outfield spot are the only positions where the Royals don’t have the voting leader and even then Omar Infante and Alex Rios have the next-highest vote totals.

Keeping in mind that there’s still a long way to go in the voting, here are the position-by-position totals:
