With just a few days remaining for fans to vote online, Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton remains in position to make his fourth consecutive All-Star Game start. He is ahead of Boston’s Jacoby Ellsbury by a little more than 120,000 votes.
Hamilton, who missed six weeks with a hairline fracture in a bone in his upper arm, is batting .293 with seven homers and 35 RBIs in 41 games played.
Two Rangers remain second in the balloting at their positions. Adrian Beltre is about 800,000 votes behind Alex Rodriguez at third base and Michael Young sits 2 million votes behind runaway DH winner David Ortiz.
