Yankees still leading in final all-star update

Final all-star voting results will be announced on Sunday, and the Yankees are still in line to have five position players in the American League starting lineup. Alex Rodriguez, Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson are pretty comfortably in position. Derek Jeter and Russell Martin are in closer races — against players with better numbers — but voting ends on Thursday, so it would take a significant surge to change those results. The tightest race right now is between Josh Hamilton and Jacoby Ellsbury for the final outfield spot.
