It appears that Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa and outfielder George Springer will join the second baseman Jose Altuve for the first time in the All-Star Game. The Astros have players leading at three positions for the fourth straight week with the final update before balloting ends on Thursday.
In the fifth and final update of American League All-Star voting, Jose Altuve remains in front for the second baseman. Altuve is leading the vote with 2,925,041 votes, ahead of Starlin Castro at 1,737,446. Altuve continued to hold his lead and is the second-most votes among AL Players behind only Aaron Judge (3,442,597).
Correa (2,229,857) remains ahead of the Indians’ Francisco Lindor (1,648,532) and became the second Astro with 2 million votes. George Springer checks in at No.3 among outfielders with 1,619,385 votes. He would start with Aaron Judge and Mike Trout (2,559,173) — assuming Trout can come back in time for the ASG.
Brian McCann isn’t in the hunt to start for the AL at catcher (1,330,042), second behind leader Salvador Perez (2,150,223) and his New York replacement Gary Sanchez (1,337,651).
Evan Gattis (885,391) checks in for designated hitter in fifth place for the third straight week.
Carlos Beltran (1,054,503) reaches a million votes in eighth place in AL outfielder voting. Josh Reddick (827,203) checks in at No. 13 among outfielders.
Voting ends on Thursday, June 29th. The selection show is on July 2 at 6 p.m. on ESPN.
