The latest All-Star voting results are in and they look a lot like last week’s results, with the same starting nine position players. The only change is that Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. has jumped Lorenzo Cain of the Royals for second place in the voting. Mike Trout leads all outfielders.

Otherwise it’s Salvador Perez of the Royals catching, Eric Hosmer of the Royals at first base, Jose Altuve of the Astros at second, Manny Machado of the Orioles at third, Xander Bogaerts of the Red Sox at shortstop and David Ortiz of the Red Sox at designated hitter.

At the moment Mookie Betts is closing fast in the voting and is now fifth in the outfield. If somehow makes it to third place — and the voting is pretty close as you can see below, we’d have five Red Sox starting.

The voting:
