Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler and Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval are the early leaders in the 2009 All-Star Game Sprint Final Vote, which is under way through 4 p.m. ET on Thursday exclusively at MLB.com.
Kinsler -- who had led in starter balloting nearly the entire way before being passed by Boston's Dustin Pedroia at the wire -- is followed in a tightly packed American League group by third baseman Brandon Inge of the Tigers, Chone Figgins of the Angels, Adam Lind of the Blue Jays and Carlos Pena of the Rays.
Sandoval has a slim lead in the National League race over center fielder Shane Victorino of the Phillies, center fielder Matt Kemp of the Dodgers, third baseman Mark Reynolds of the D-backs and shortstop Cristian Guzman of the Nationals.
