The Chicago White Sox hope to be well-represented at this year’s MLB All-Star Game in Denver, and the club will have its first chance to land a player on that squad, as three players have been named as finalists in fan voting for the game.
In this year’s All-Star voting format, the top three players at each infield position, along with the top nine outfielders, advanced to a second round of voting, with the winner at each position being determined in coming days.
First baseman José Abreu, the reigning American League MVP, was named one of three finalists at his position. Catcher Yasmani Grandal and third baseman Yoán Moncada were also named as finalists by Major League Baseball on Sunday.
Abreu will face some stiff competition, going up against Toronto’s Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. and Houston’s Yuli Gurriel.

Final phase voting will start at 11 a.m. Monday, and will run through Thursday, according to Major League Baseball.
