Now, it’s time for White Sox fans to take notice of Rios. The center fielder has played Gold Glove-caliber defense in center. He leads the White Sox with a .315 average, while knocking out 11 home runs and driving in 27. Rios has fanned just 21 times in 178 at-bats, and with 16 stolen bases, he’s on pace to become the franchise’s first 30-30 man in a single season.
Yet, Rios sits on the outside looking in of the top 15 vote-getters among American League outfielders in the second round of online voting, with the results released on Tuesday.
Fans can cast their votes for starters up to 25 times at MLB.com and all 30 club sites using the 2010 All-Star Game MLB.com Ballot sponsored by Sprint until July 1 at 10:59 p.m. CT.
