Jackie Bradley Jr. moves into lineup in latest AL All-Star balloting
Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. has moved into the starting lineup in the latest round of American League All-Star voting.
Bradley has leapfrogged Orioles slugger Mark Trumbo in the balloting over the course of one week, joining Mike Trout and Lorenzo Cain as starting outfielders.
The rest of the starters have remained the same, with Eric Hosmer, Jose Altuve, Manny Machado, Xander Bogaerts, David Ortiz and Salvador Perez holding onto their top spots around the diamond. Perez is nearly a lock to start at catcher as the leading vote-getter with 1,605,922 million. Three members of the Royals, including Hosmer and Cain, are slated to start.
Royals fans continue to pack the ballot boxes, as Kansas City players sit in second place at second base (Omar Infante), third base (Mike Moustakas), shortstop (Alcides Escobar) and DH (Kendrys Morales).
The All-Star Game is July 12 at Petco Park in San Diego.
