There was little change in the latest All-Star Game voting update.
Major League Baseball released the vote totals on Tuesday and three Royals are still in line to start the Midsummer Classic in San Diego on July 12: Catcher Salvador Perez, first baseman Eric Hosmer and center fielder Lorenzo Cain.
Perez leads all American League players with 1,605,922 votes. Perez has more than a million votes than second-place Matt Wieters of the Orioles (453,237). Hosmer has a comfortable lead on Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera (1,272,557 votes to 734,104).
Cain has received 944,362 votes, second to the Angels’ Mike Trout (1,344,578). Boston’s Jackie Bradley Jr. is third (937,571). Alex Gordon is seventh (705,514) and Paul Orlando is in eighth (560,542).
Never miss a local story.
At the rest of the positions, the Royals players are still in second place.
Omar Infante (622,683) trails Jose Altuve of the Astros (893,332) at second base. Shortstop Alcides Escobar (814,001) is behind Boston’s Xander Bogaerts (1,040,465).
Third baseman Mike Moustakas (725,731) is behind Baltimore’s Manny Machado (898,715), while designated hitter Kendrys Morales (650,077) is a distant second to Boston’s David Ortiz (1,460,339).
