Aaron Judge continues to solidify a starting spot at the MLB All-Star Game next month, while a quartet of Yankees — including a pair of rookies — find themselves in second place at their positions.

Judge is third in outfield balloting with 1,061,370 votes in Tuesday’s American League voting update. The slugger is behind Mookie Betts of the Red Sox (1,568,417) and Mike Trout of the Angels (1,323,292). Judge has more than double the votes of fourth-place Michael Brantley (518,350).

Meanwhile, Gary Sanchez — who was leading the vote at catcher in last week’s update — has fallen to second place behind Wilson Ramos of the Rays. Sanchez has 618,889 votes, while Ramos has 678,159.

Gleyber Torres (534,758), who was called up in late April, trails only the Astros’ Jose Altuve, the AL’s overall leading vote-getter with 1,572,101, at second base.

Rookie third baseman Miguel Andujar (590,188) is second to the Indians’ Jose Ramirez (893,530), and Giancarlo Stanton is second at designated hitter (478,872), with J.D. Martinez of the Red Sox pulling in 1,119,263 votes.

Didi Gregorius is fourth among shortstops with 413,135 votes, while Brett Gardner (330,970) and Aaron Hicks (239,594) are seventh and 13th in outfield balloting, respectively.

The MLB All-Star Game is July 17 in Washington.
