The first release of American League vote totals for the 2011 MLB All-Star Game was released on Wednesday, and the Los Angeles Angels appear unlikely to have anyone voted into the game. The game will be held at Chase Field in Phoenix on July 12. Currently, only two Angels are in the top five at their positions in American League voting.
Maicer Izturis is a distant fifth place at third base with 199,423 votes, far behind the 945,127 votes received by leader Alex Rodriguez. At shortstop, Erick Aybar is also fifth, with 215,991 votes, trailing another Yankee, Derek Jeter, who has 931,410 votes. Torii Hunter and Jered Weaver were named All-Stars in 2010, when the game was held in Anaheim. Vernon Wells, now with the Angels, made the All-Star team last season while with Toronto. MLB All-Star voting runs through June 30.
