Updated AL All-Star Ballot: Jeter and Cano Still Ahead

Balloting for the American League All-Star team is not over, not until July 1st, and the Yankees currently have two players with the most amount of votes for their positions, SS Derek Jeter and 2B Robinson Cano.

Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez, and Jorge Posada are all in second place at their respective positions, but only Teixeira is close enough to still have a chance. In the outfield the Yankees don’t have anybody in the top three or four, but they are currently holding down spots five, six, and eight with Nick Swisher, Curtis Granderson, and Brett Gardner in those spots respectively.

Swisher has been putting together a great season so until the voting is over and done with I’m not going to count him out. He’s even campaigning for it using his Twitter account.

Here are the most recent numbers:
