Fans have through June 29 to vote for the players that will start the Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Miami on July 11. If early results are any indication, at least one star from the New York Yankees will be in the lineup. The first American League ballot update was released Wednesday. 

Rookie right fielder, Aaron Judge is in good shape to start in the AL outfield. Judge (730,438 votes) is second in overall voting, behind only NJ native, Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (776,937). If voting ended today, Trout and Judge would be joined in the outfield by Mookie Betts of the Boston Red Sox. Betts is in a close race with Michael Brantley of the Cleveland Indians (333,703) and fellow Red Sox Andrew Benintendi (327,047). 

Starlin Castro is leading the votes at second base, but it’s tight. Castro sits at 516,268, while Jose Altuve of the Houston Astros was right behind at 515,732.

No other Yankee is currently in the top two at their respective positions. Matt Holliday sits third among designated hitters where Nelson Cruz is the leader. Gary Sanchez is fourth among catchers, Didi Gregorius fourth at shortstop, and Chase Headley fifth at third base. 

The first National League update will be announced on Thursday. The next AL update will be Monday, June 6.
