The Yankees could have as many as six starters voted into next month's MLB All-Star Game.

Catcher Gary Sanchez, first baseman Luke Voit, second baseman DJ LeMahieu, shortstop Gleyber Torres, third baseman Gio Urshela and outfielder Aaron Judge are finalists for the starters election, which begins at noon Wednesday and runs through 4 p.m. Thursday. No Mets finished high enough in the primary round to advance to the starters election.

The winners will be revealed at 7 p.m. Thursday on ESPN.

Pitchers and reserves for the All-Star Game, which is set for July 9 at Progressive Field in Cleveland, will be announced at 5:30 p.m. Sunday on ESPN.
