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.

Danny Duffy offered no excuses for his poor performance. Nor did he try to blame anyone else.
Jason Vargas never let Michael Brantley’s two-run homer in the first inning get to him.
