Snyder: My current All-Star ballot

Major League Baseball has released its first update on how the All-Star balloting is shaking out in the American League, and the top vote-getter is Angels superstar Mike Trout with 764,007 votes.

There are several close races and voting continues through 11:59 p.m. ET on July 3, so a few of these races could change.

To cast your own ballot, hop on over to MLB.com

Here are the updated tallies by position (click here for full MLB PR release).

First base

1. Miguel Cabrera, Tigers; 440,407
2. Albert Pujols, Angels; 371,193
3. Jose Abreu, White Sox; 367,617

Second base

1. Ian Kinsler, Tigers; 356,244
2. Robinson Cano, Mariners; 350,293
3. Dustin Pedroia, Red Sox; 343,321

Third base

1. Josh Donaldson, Athletics; 464,367
2. Evan Longoria, Rays; 407,724
3. Adrian Beltre, Rangers; 281,460

Shortstop

1. Derek Jeter, Yankees; 602,525
2. Alexei Ramirez, White Sox; 472,537
3. J.J. Hardy, Orioles; 265,923

Designated hitter

1. David Ortiz, Red Sox; 501,808
2. Nelson Cruz, Orioles; 484,186
3. Victor Martinez, Tigers; 340,827

Catcher

1. Matt Wieters, Orioles; 540,258
2. Brian McCann, Yankees; 373,169
3. Derek Norris, A's; 215,110

Outfield

1. Mike Trout, Angels; 764,007
2. Jose Bautista, Blue Jays; 675,290
3. Jacoby Ellsbury, Yankees; 417,452
4. Carlos Beltran, Yankees; 401,101
5. Melky Cabrera, Blue Jays; 364,506
6. Torii Hunter, Tigers; 322,736

So the starters if the balloting were closed right now would be Cabrera, Kinsler, Donaldson, Jeter, Ortiz, Wieters (though he's injured), Trout, Bautista and Ellsbury. Again, though, some of this could change in the next five weeks.
