Ortiz would be the only player from the Red Sox in the All-Star starting lineup if voting ended now, but second baseman Dustin Pedroia (third place at his position, trailing by 1,248,649 votes) still has a long-shot chance to overcome Ian Kinsler of the Texas Rangers and Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees.
Jacoby Ellsbury, who has missed most of the season with a shoulder injury, is 14th in the voting among A.L. outfielders.
