Major League Baseball has unveiled the latest standings for the American League in the 2017 All-Star Game voting, with outfielders Mike Trout and Aaron Judge leading the way. 

Here's how the current starting nine stacks up for the Midsummer Classic, via MLB on Twitter:

While Trout and Judge maintained their leads in the balloting, there were some notable changes from the first update last week. 

Jose Altuve surpassed Starlin Castro at second base. Miguel Sano powered by Manny Machado at third base. Michael Brantley slipped by Mookie Betts for the third outfield spot. 

The Cleveland Indians are the only AL team on pace to have multiple starters in the All-Star Game, with Brantley joined by shortstop Francisco Lindor atop the voting. 

Trout, who had surgery to repair his injured thumb last Wednesday and will need six to eight weeks of recovery time, seems likely to miss the All-Star Game for the first time in six full MLB seasons. 

The absence of Trout does open the door for outfielders on the cusp of being voted in, such as Betts and Chicago's Avisail Garcia, to take a starting spot.
