The third updated on the American League All-Star vote has dropped, and there's a new leading vote-getter.
Last time out, the Angels' Mike Trout took the honor by edging out Jose Bautista of the Blue Jays by a mere 10,000 votes or so. Now, Bautista has passed him up, as he checks in with roughly 2.1 million ballots cast to Trout's roughly 1.9 million. (On that point, Bautista this season is batting a nifty .309/.435/.548.) Otherwise, nothing else has changed -- i.e., the starting lineup is the same as it was last time.
