Altuve among Astros seeking your ASG vote

HOUSTON -- Four-time All-Star Jose Altuve -- who's started at second base for the American League the past two years -- red-hot first baseman Yuli Gurriel, shortstop Carlos Correa and outfielder George Springer lead the Astros' contingent of players on this year's Esurance MLB All-Star Game Ballot.

Also on the ballot for Houston are Carlos Beltran, Alex Bregman, Evan Gattis, Brian McCann and Josh Reddick. Beltran, a nine-time All-Star, last wore an Astros uniform in an All-Star Game in 2004, shortly after being acquired from the Royals.
