Mancini 17th among AL outfielders in All-Star Game voting

Major League Baseball released the first update on All-Star Game balloting in the American League and only two Orioles register in the top 10.

Trey Mancini is 17th among outfielders and Chris Davis is 10th among first basemen.

Mancini has received 100,457 votes to put him at a significant distance from leader Mike Trout, who paces all AL players with 951,002. George Springer is second with 776,352 and Austin Meadows is third with 468,111.

Davis has accumulated 70,010 votes. Luke Voit ranks first with 393,356.

Orioles on the ballot who don’t appear in the top 10 include catcher Pedro Severino, second baseman Jonathan Villar, shortstop Richie Martin, third baseman Rio Ruiz, outfielders Dwight Smith Jr. and Joey Rickard and designated hitter Renato Núñez.

Rickard was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on May 23.

Davis won’t be spending the break in Cleveland. He goes into Tuesday’s series opener against the Blue Jays batting .161/.241/.301 in 47 games.

The ballot is available online and via mobile devices at MLB.com, all 30 club sites, the MLB At Bat and MLB Ballpark mobile apps and on Google Search, and it will be accessible until the “primary” voting period ends on June 21 at 4:00 p.m.

The next AL update will be provided on June 17.
