The Toronto Blue Jays are off to a potential franchise-best start when it comes to voting for the MLB All-Star Game. 

Alejandro Kirk, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., and Bo Bichette lead their respective positions in American League voting for the All-Star Game, and George Springer ranks third. 

Each is in line to nab a starting position in the All-Star Game, hosted by the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday, July 19. Toronto has never had four starters in an All-Star Game before. 

Kirk leads all American League catchers, and is third in the overall count in the AL, with 1,057,008 votes. He has a .307 average with 55 hits, six home runs, and 22 runs batted in. 

Guerrero Jr. leads all first basemen with 947,045 votes. Guerrero leads the Blue Jays and is sixth overall in the AL with 17 home runs and 41 RBIs. He also leads the club with 32 walks, and is second in hits with 65. 

Bichette leads all shortstops with 585,744 votes. He has a .259 average and leads the Blue Jays with 72 hits, is tied for second with 37 runs, is third with 10 home runs, and second with 33 RBIs. 

George Springer is third in voting among outfielders with 622,063 votes. Springer, who is batting .263, is second on the Blue Jays in RBIs (34) and home runs (13), and leads the team with 40 runs scored. 

Voting, which can be completed on the Blue Jays’ website or directly at MLB.com, takes place in two phases. 

The first phase allows for daily voting and ends on Thursday, June 30. The top overall vote getters in each league will automatically earn the starting spot of their position. The top two players at each position, including six outfielders, will move on to a final ballot to determine All-Star starters. The final phase of voting begins on Tuesday, July 5. 

Fans can vote up to five times per 24-hour period.
