Your Texas Rangers are getting no love.
Despite having the second best record in the American League and a lineup filled with well-known players and former All-Stars, no Rangers player is among the top five at any position in the first update of All-Star balloting.
The Rangers, who are 31-21 entering today’s series finale in Cleveland, are behind only the Red Sox for the best record in the A.L.
Not even Ian Desmond, who has been on fire for the past month, is among the top 15 outfielders vote-getters. Desmond is second among outfielders in hits (60) and doubles (14), sixth in batting average (.298) and ninth in RBI (32).
Rookie outfielder Nomar Mazara is fourth in batting average (.302), tied for 10th with nine homers, and 11th with 51 hits, despite missing the first week of the season. Still, no love for Nomar.
There are other arguments to be made for shortstop Elvis Andrus, second baseman Rougned Odor and third baseman Adrian Beltre, but those are more debatable.
There is plenty of time to cast your vote, which is available here at MLB.com. Voting ends at 10:59 p.m. June 30.
