CLEVELAND, Ohio- The Cleveland Indians did not have a lot of representatives in the MLB All-Star Game last year, which is insane considering they were one game away from winning the World Series. This year, the fans seem to be getting more active to make sure that the Tribe is well represented.
Francisco Lindor still leads all AL Shortstops in voting, as the Indians’ star has accumulated 842,166 votes. Houston Astros’ Shortstop Carlos Correa has 662,124 votes, falling nearly two-hundred thousand votes behind Lindor.
More exciting news features Tribe outfielder Michael Brantley. Brantley has worked into the top three outfielders, passing Boston’s Mookie Betts. Brantley is trying to earn his first-ever fan-voted start, which would be the first Indians outfielder voted to start in the Midsummer Classic since Juan Gonzalez in 2001.
Other Indians sit in comfortable spots within the top three in their positions, such as Third Baseman Jose Ramirez (2nd place), Designated Hitter Edwin Encarnacion (3rd place), Second Baseman Jason Kipnis (3rd Place) and First Baseman Carlos Santana (3rd Place).
