A couple of Rays players made slight upward moves in All-Star vote totals, according to the latest release from MLB.
Carlos Pena is up one spot to fourth among AL first basemen with 199,568 votes, still well behind leader Kevin Youkilis of the Red Sox (662,869).
Carl Crawford also moved up a spot to 12th among outfielders with 247,997 votes, while B.J. Upton remained in 15th place at 193,585 votes.
The biggest mover of the week was former Ray Josh Hamilton, who rightfully (based on his remarkable stats) moved up to second place in the outfield voting (479,492), still well behind Manny Ramirez (811,612) but in line for a start at the All-Star Game. Wouldn’t that be something?
