In the final update before voting closes, Altuve leads Yankees 2B Starlin Castro by more than 1 million votes.

Correa leads Indians SS Francisco Lindor by more than 580,000 votes.

Springer held at third in outfield voting, leading fourth-place OF Michael Brantley, of the Indians, by more than 290,000 votes.
