Programming note: A’s-Rangers coverage starts Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. with A’s Pregame Live on CSN California.
Stephen Vogt is having a career-year, but the A's backtop is facing long odds to start the 2015 All-Star Game in Cincinnati.
MLB released the latest All-Star balloting update Monday and Vogt slid from second place to third place among American League catchers.
Kansas City's Salvador Perez continues to lead the voting with 10,199,151 votes, while Toronto's Russell Martin now sits in second place with 4,736,279 votes, ahead of Vogt's 4,368,609.
Vogt leads all qualified AL catchers in batting average (.294), on-base percentage (.393), slugging percentage (.545), home runs (13), RBI (51) and Wins Above Replacement (3.0).
All of those numbers would be career high's for Vogt if the season ended Monday.
Voting, which is being done completely online, ends July 2 with 8:59 p.m. PST.
In last week's round of balloting, Vogt trailed Perez 7,202,292 to 3,260,864.
