Sanchez, Trout, Springer Early Leaders In 2019 MLB All-Star Game AL Voting

By Barry Janoff

June 10, 2019: With the 2019 MLB All-Star Game presented by MasterCard just four weeks off, the league has unveiled the first fan ballot results presented by Google for the American League — and the numbers are very good for Gary Sanchez, Mike Trout and George Springer.

New York Yankees catcher Sanchez holds the largest lead among players at all positions — more than 600,000 votes over James McCann of the Chicago White Sox — while Los Angeles Angeles outfield Trout and outfielder George Springer of the Houston Astros are No. 1 and No 2, respectively, in their position to date.

Trout has the most votes to date among all AL players at more than 900,000, some 200,000 ahead of Springer, who in turn is about 300,000 ahead of Austin Meadows of the Tampa Bay Rays.

Alex Bregman of the Astros has a commanding lead of more than 300,000 votes at third base over Gio Urshela of the Yankees.

The voting and selection of AL teams is far from over.

People can vote in "The Primary" at MLB.com and at all 30 club sites, the MLB At Bat and MLB Ballpark apps up to five times in any 24-hour period. People in the U.S. and Canada can also vote at Google Search for every position, or up to 17 unique players per day, by searching "MLB Vote" or the names of their favorite players.

Primary voting ends at June 21 (4 PM ET).

Under new guidelines, the top three vote-getters in "The Primary" at each position — including nine outfielders — in each league move to The Starters Election., which begins Noon ET on June 26.

The votes will reset for a 28-hour voting time through June 27 (4 PM ET).

Starters for the 2019 All-Star Game will be unveiled on ESPN that night (7 PM ET).

Pitchers and reserves will be on June 30.

The 90th MLB All-Star Game, at Progressive Field in Cleveland, will air nationally Fox on July 9; in Canada by Rogers Sportsnet and RDS; and worldwide by partners in more than 180 countries.

Fox Deportes will provide Spanish-language coverage in the U.S.

The T-Mobile Home Run Derby is scheduled for July 8, to air on ESPN.

The 2019 Home Run Derby winner will receive a $1 million prize
