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 Los Angeles 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.

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