ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. — Robinson Cano widened his lead in the latest balloting update, released Sunday night by Major League Baseball, to determine the starting second baseman for the American League in the All-Star Game.

Cano now holds a 224,336-vote margin over Detroit’s Ian Kinsler, who ranks second. Cano’s led Kinsler by 76,232 votes in last week’s update.

No other Mariners are listed among the balloting leaders; MLB releases the top five vote-getters for catcher, designated hitter and each of the four infield positions. It releases the top 15 outfielders.

In-stadium balloting runs through June 26, but online ballots are accepted at www.mlb.com and www.mariners.com through 8:59 p.m. Pacific time on July 3. The teams will be revealed the weekend of July 5-6.

The All-Star Game is July 15 at Target Field in Minneapolis.

Cano is seeking to be voted in as the AL starter for a fifth consecutive year.
