Twins players on pace to advance in All-Star voting
Jorge Polanco led the American League shortstop vote with 818,082 votes Monday morning. The 25-year-old is in the midst of a breakout season.
Polanco is batting .332/.395/.557 with a .952 OPS and leads all qualified shortstops in those five metrics.
He’s the only Minnesota player to lead the vote at his position, but several other Twins stars should be in the mix during the second round of voting, which begins June 26, while the starters will be revealed June 27.
The top three vote-getters at each position, as well as the top nine outfielders, will advance to the “Starters Election.”
Kepler ranks 10th with 435,789 votes, while Buxton ranks 11th with 418,287 votes.
