In a press release issued today, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees have announced that four of their players, Shelly Duncan, Austin Jackson, Chris Stewart and John Rodriguez currently lead their respective positions in all-star votes. At this time, Juan Miranda and pitcher Mark Melancon trail by only a few votes.
In AAA baseball, the fan’s votes count 33%. The Media (33%) and managers (33%) make up the final voting percentages to choose all-star starters.
Melancon was on the Yankees staff earlier this season and did pitch well. Jackson is in his first year at Triple-A and is doing well. Duncan was a major leaguer for awhile and has a ton of potential, which unfortunately has been unrealized everytime he is on the Yankees squad.
I can’t speak about the other players – I don’t know much about them – but take 2 minutes and head to this website to vote Yankees!
