The All-Star break is the perfect time for teams and players to reflect on their season that is more than halfway over. It is the time that teams can take a look at what they have already accomplished and what is still left to be done.
There are many surprises already in the American League through half of the season. The Chicago White Sox have shocked the league and claimed first place at the break while the Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers have struggled all season long.
Whether teams have succeeded or sunk to this point in the year, they have all had at least one player that have stood out. Some have propelled their teams to first place while others have kept their teams' heads above water.
Here is a look at each AL team's MVP this season at the All-Star Break. We'll start with the American League East and the division leading New York Yankees.
