All-Star ballot update #3: Aaron Judge reigns supreme
After a big night in Anaheim, Aaron Judge continues to collect accolades in 2017 as he is the leading vote getter in all of the American League for the second week in a row. The man who heard MVP chants 3,000 miles away from his home stadium and is currently leading the league in the Triple Crown categories is pulling away from second place vote getter Jose Altuve by almost 300,000 votes.
The rest of the team remained relatively stagnant in terms of their position from last week. Altuve is pulling away from Starlin Castro by a little less than 600,000 votes. Holliday is closing in on Nelson Cruz for the designated hitter starting position, but still sits at second place by about 180,000 votes. Gary Sanchez and Didi Gregorius are having a scorching hot month of June and are making strong cases for both of them to selected to play in the Midsummer Classic. Gary Sanchez is up to ten home runs and 28 RBIs, while Gregorius is hitting .344 and is in the midst of a 14-game hitting streak. However, both players remain fourth and third respectively among players in their position. Brett Gardner is still five players out of a starting position, and Aaron Hicks is not on the ballot.
