2012 MLB All-Star Game Voting: Robinson Cano Takes Lead, Joins Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson In Projected American League Starting Lineup

New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano has overtaken the Texas Rangers' Ian Kinsler in 2012 All-Star Game voting, according to the latest results released by the MLB on Monday.

Cano was the only player to leapfrog a competitor in the order since the latest voting was released last week. If current voting stands, Cano would join two teammates, shortstop Derek Jeter and outfielder Curtis Granderson, in the American League's starting lineup in the All-Star game.

Cano leads Kinsler by nearly 97,000 votes. Jeter has a comfortable margin of more than 1.6 million votes over his closest competitor, Elvis Andrus of the Rangers. Granderson is currently in second place among A.L. outfielders, behind Josh Hamilton but more than 1 million votes ahead of the third-place Jose Bautista.
