Fans can vote online at mlb.com. Vote totals will reset in Phase 2. Fans will be able to cast a ballot once per day on various MLB platforms. The fan vote winner at each position will represent their respective league as an All-Star starter. All-Star starters will be announced on July 3 at 6 p.m. Central on ESPN.

“They are extremely deserving,” Royals manager Matt Quatraro said. “I saw where the voting was. They are behind some really good players.

But, in my mind, they should both be starters.” Perez garnered 1,429,732 votes in Phase 1. He trailed Baltimore Orioles star Adley Rutschman (2,791,952) at the catcher position. Perez is looking to earn his ninth All-Star selection and represent the Royals in 94th Midsummer Classic.
