At this point, with less than a month remaining before fan voting for the AL All-Star Game roster ends, it seems pretty unlikely that any Ranger will win the balloting at their respective position, but two obvious choices are still technically in the running as they sit in the top 5 of their respective position in the latest release of numbers on Monday.

Prince Fielder, the league's top hitter who has suddenly found his long-lost power stroke over the past month, remained in third place among AL first basemen, trailing Kansas City's Eric Hosmer and Detroit's Miguel Cabrera, and he's trailing them by a lot.

Fielder sits at 1.08 million votes — nearly two million votes behind second-place Cabrera and 2.5 million votes behind first-place Hosmer.

Beltre climbed a spot in the third base balloting, passing Baltimore's Manny Machado, but still sits in fourth place among AL third basemen. Beltre has just more than 619,000 votes, while the league leader, Mike Moustakas, has more than four million votes.

Out of the nine positions, seven are led in the fan voting by Royals.
