MLB All-Star Game Voting: Prince Fielder Continues To Lead At First Base

Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder is the top vote-getter in the most recent All-Star ballot tabulations released by MLB.com. But things are getting tighter.

When MLB.com released numbers last week, Fielder held a 330,000-vote lead over No. 2 Mark Teixeira of the New York Yankees.

Teixeira has faded a bit, but Paul Konerko, previously No. 3, has ascended to No. 2 -- and he has narrowed the gap. At last count, Fielder checked in with 1,421,786 votes, Konerko with 1,147,089, a difference of 274,697. That lead doesn't figure to evaporate overnight, but Konerko is certainly coming on strong. In last week's count, he was No. 3 and has less than 700,000 votes.

Here is the current leaderboard:

FIRST BASE
Prince Fielder, Tigers: 1,421,786
Paul Konerko, White Sox: 1,147,089
Mark Teixeira, Yankees: 991,075
Mitch Moreland, Rangers: 852,091
Albert Pujols, Angels: 707,779

Miguel Cabrera, meanwhile, has some catching up to do at third base:

THIRD BASE
Adrian Beltre, Rangers: 1,634,057
Miguel Cabrera, Tigers: 1,313,063
Evan Longoria, Rays: 1,061,901
Alex Rodriguez, Yankees: 927,163
Mike Moustakas, Royals: 548,936
