NEW YORK (AP) _ Jacoby Ellsbury has narrowed the gap on Josh
Hamilton in fan voting for the final starting spot in the American
League outfield at the All-Star game.

Major League Baseball released the latest results Tuesday. The
All-Star teams will be announced Sunday, except for a last reserve.
Hamilton is the only player outside the AL East who leads in the
voting. The Texas slugger is about 120,000 ahead of Ellsbury, the
Boston speedster.

Toronto outfielder Jose Bautista tops all major leaguers with
more than 5.2 million votes. Balloting ends Thursday night.

Injured shortstop Derek Jeter, third baseman Alex Rodriguez,
second baseman Robinson Cano, outfielder Curtis Granderson and
catcher Russell Martin of the New York Yankees are ahead, as are
Boston first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and designated hitter David
Ortiz.
