The second balloting update for the 2019 MLB All-Star Game was released Monday, and the Yankees are still primed to send a good contingent of players to Cleveland come July. Similar to the first voting return released last week, catcher Gary Sanchez and first baseman Luke Voit still remain atop their respective positions in the American League.
Gary Sanchez, who clearly deserves a starting nod, has eclipsed well over one million votes (one of only five AL players to do so) and is all but a lock to make his second All-Star team. The slugger currently leads all Major League catchers with 20 home runs and is second overall in the AL in that category.
Luke Voit, seeking his first All-Star appearance, still has a sizeable lead over second place C.J. Cron of the Twins, with 696,164 votes. Voit, in his first full season with the Yankees, has followed up his 2018 breakout with aplomb, smashing 17 homers to go along with 45 RBI. A trip to the Midsummer Classic would be much deserved for the 28-year-old slugger.
DJ LeMahieu, Gio Urshela, Gleyber Torres, and Aaron Judge are all currently in position to be selected to the All-Star Game as well. LeMahieu, a two-time All-Star with the Rockies, is in third place for second basemen, with a wide gap between him and Jonathon Scoop in fourth. Urshela, who slid into the Yankees' starting lineup after Miguel Andujar's season-ending injury in April, is currently in second for AL third basemen and is in contention to make his first trip to the Midsummer Classic. 
Torres is in a tight race with Chicago's Tim Anderson for the final third basemen spot, with Torres leading by around 50,000 votes. Judge, who has not played since April after suffering an oblique strain, is still in the top seven for all AL outfielders and could very likely make his third consecutive All-Star team.
Fans can vote in "The Primary" stage of voting until this Friday at 4 p.m. ET. After that point, the top three vote-getters at each position will move on to the second round of voting to determine the starters in this year's game.
Mike Trout still leads all AL players with 1,904,273 votes. The 90th MLB All-Star Game will be played at Progressive Field on Tuesday, July 9.
