Much like on the field, Miguel Cabrera is off to a strong start at the ballot box in his quest for a third consecutive All-Star Game start. The reigning American League All-Star starter at first base is leading at the position again, outpacing Royals counterpart Eric Hosmer.
At this point, Cabrera is the only Tigers player leading at his position. He is not the only one on the club with a race on his hands. Slick-fielding Jose Iglesias currently ranks second to Alcides Escobar among AL shortstops, while his double-play partner Ian Kinsler is third among AL second basemen behind Jose Altuve and Omar Infante.
