2012 MLB All-Star Game Voting: Derek Jeter 2nd In American League Balloting, Several Other New York Yankees In Mix

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is second among all players in the American League All-Star Voting released on Monday by the MLB.

Jeter (3,359,875 votes) is a distant second behind Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton (5,414,880 votes). Other Yankees in the mix at their positions include second baseman Robinson Cano and outfielder Curtis Granderson, both in second place at their respect positions. Granderson would thus be a starter in the AL outfield if current results hold.

Mark Teixeira is third in the voting for first basemen behind Prince Fielder of the Texas Rangers and Paul Konerko of the Chicago White Sox. Nick Swisher is seventh among outfielders.
