Last week’s update listed eight Royals as starters, including Eric Hosmer, who had more than half a million votes more than Cabrera.
MLB admits they’ve cancelled between 60 and 65 million All-Star Ballots because of potential fraud.
Verlander Says MLB Will Have To Answer For All-Star Game Voting; Reliever Calls System ‘Cheap,’ Others Say Social Media Advantage Unfair
“I think if it holds the way it is, Major League Baseball, their hand’s going to be forced to make adjustments,” Verlander said Monday.
First baseman Eric Hosmer still leads Miguel Cabrera by close to half a million votes.
A possible reason why is that the team is responding to the latest ballot update, which listed seven Royals – and zero Tigers – as starters.
If voting ended Monday, no Detroit Tigers would start the All-Star Game. Hosmer now has a considerable lead over Cabrera.
Cabrera has a batting average of .333 and an on-base percentage of .441, the best in the American League.
Voting for the this year’s MLB All Star Game will exclusively be online, ending in-stadium balloting on punch card ballots.
