Ronald Acuna Jr. (27-Atlanta Braves) leapfrogged Shohei Ohtani (29-LA Angels) for the overall lead in the first round of Major League Baseball (MLB) All-Star voting.

The MLB Office of the Commissioner released the first interim results of the All-Star Fan Voting on Wednesday.

National League (NL) outfielder nominee 메이저사이트 Acuna Jr. took the top spot overall. With 1,086,537 votes, he was the only candidate to surpass the 1 million-vote mark.

He was followed by Ohtani, the American League (AL) designated hitter nominee, who received 1,092,537 votes. Ohtani is second in MLB and first in the AL with 944,182 votes.

Aaron Judge (New York Yankees), who is competing with Ohtani for the AL Most Valuable Player (MVP) award for the second time this year, is second in the AL. The outfielder nominee received 849,965 votes.

As for Korean players, Ha Sung Kim (San Diego Padres) is ninth in the NL second baseman race. He received 82,879 votes. Luis Arajuez (Miami Marlins) leads the category with 509,092 votes.

MLB All-Star voting is a two-round process. The top two vote-getters at each position in the first round of voting (six outfielders) will have a second runoff to determine the All-Star Game starters.

The top two vote-getters in both leagues will be selected to start the All-Star Game without a second vote.

Pitchers will be selected through a combination of player voting and secretariat recommendations.

This year’s All-Star Game will be held on June 12 at T-Mobile Park, home of the Seattle Mariners.
