Vladimir Guerrero Jr.'s breakout season looks like it will include a trip to Coors Field in Colorado for the 2021 All-Star Game.

The Toronto Blue Jays first baseman leads all players in voting for the Midsummer Classic after the first round of balloting with 857,956 votes, the league announced Monday.

The 22-year-old slugger is putting together an MVP-caliber season while leading the majors in almost every significant offensive statistic, including the American League's Triple Crown categories (home runs, RBIs, and batting average). His 4.1 fWAR is almost a full win better than the second-best mark.

Meanwhile, Guerrero's teammate Marcus Semien is tops in voting among AL second basemen.

Here are the projected position-player starters based on Monday's voting results:

AL Starters Position
Salvador Perez (KC) C
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (TOR) 1B
Marcus Semien (TOR) 2B
Xander Bogaerts (BOS) SS
Rafael Devers (BOS) 3B
Byron Buxton (MIN) OF
Mike Trout (LAA) OF
Aaron Judge (NYY) OF
Shohei Ohtani (LAA) DH
NL Starters Position
Buster Posey (SF) C
Max Muncy (LA) 1B
Ozzie Albies (ATL) 2B
Fernando Tatis Jr. (SD) SS
Kris Bryant (CHC) 3B
Jesse Winker (CIN) OF
Ronald Acuna Jr. (ATL) OF
Nick Castellanos (CIN) OF

The league and ballot selections from players will determine all of the pitchers and reserves.

The All-Star Game will take place on July 13.
