If there were any doubt before, there’s none now: The Detroit Tigers aren’t going to get a player into the 2018 MLB All-Star Game via the fan vote.
Miguel Cabrera is the only Tigers player with a plausible chance of winning, and he’s out for the rest of the season due to injury.
The only other Tigers player to get enough votes to even be listed MLB’s updated tally was Nicholas Castellanos. He’s in 11th place among outfielders, trailing Aaron Judge by 750,000 votes and Mike Trout and Mookie Betts by more than a million.
The complete update is here.
Every team is guaranteed at least one spot on the All-Star roster. After fans pick the starting nine (or eight, in the case of the National League), the rest of the squad is filled out with input from players and managers.
The game is July 17 in Washington and voting runs through July 5.
