Aaron Judge was the lone position player on either New York team to be voted a starter for the 2021 MLB All-Star Game.
The Yankees right fielder finished second behind injured Angels superstar Mike Trout among American League outfielders, with Teoscar Hernandez of the Blue Jays nabbing the other starting nod.
Judge, who is batting .282 with 18 homers and 42 RBIs with a .904 OPS in 75 games, will start in the Midsummer Classic for the third time. He had been named last week as one of nine finalists for the three starting outfield spots. DJ LeMahieu also was among three finalists at second base, but he finished behind starter Marcus Semien of the Blue Jays in the final phase of fan balloting.
The remaining AL starters are Angels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani, Royals catcher Salvador Perez, Blue Jays first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts and Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers, with the pitchers and reserves being named on Sunday for the July 13 game at Coors Field in Denver.
