Blue Jays' Guerrero leads all players in All-Star Game voting
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 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:
|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|
|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.
