The Orioles’ Manny Machado continues to lead in American League All-Star voting at shortstop and has increased his hold on the top spot from a week ago in voting results released Tuesday by Major League Baseball.
Former Orioles standout Rich Dauer, who nearly died after suffering a subdural hematoma during the Houston Astros World Series celebration last year, was added to the AL coaching staff for the All-Star Game.
The first results released of American League All-Star voting show the Orioles' Manny Machado leading at shortstop by 110,000 over the Indians' Francisco Lindor. No other Oriole shows up among the leaders.
The MLB Draft is this week, with the first and second round set for Monday night. The Orioles need hitters just as much as they need pitchers — but will they get what they need before others take them?
