It surprises no one that Miguel Cabrera is the leading vote getter among first baseman with 1,347,351 votes. Miggy is putting together another incredible season, and he is more than deserving of his spot on the list. Cabrera is hitting .341 with 11 home runs and 32 RBI’s this season.

Eric Hosmer of the Kansas City Royals ranks 2nd in balloting with 1,101,738 votes. Homser made a name for himself last postseason, and his playoff success has carried over to 2015. He is hitting .305 with 7 home runs and 30 RBI’s for the Royals.

Not many people expected Mark Teixeira to have such a huge season for the Yankees in 2015. The veteran first baseman is 3rd in balloting after receiving 342,788 votes. Tex is hitting .243 with 14 home runs and 35 RBI’s.

Jose Abreu may have the most pure power in baseball, and the fans have him 4th in voting with 222,288 ballots cast. Abreu is a budding star with the White Sox, and he is currently hitting .274 with 8 home runs and 27 RBI’s.

Albert Pujols may be a first ballot hall of famer, but he is not getting much love from the fans this season. Pujols is currently 5th in first base voting with 217,576 votes counted. The Angels’ first baseman is hitting just .235 this season with 8 home runs and 17 RBI’s.

Logan Morrison may be a fan favorite in Seattle, but fans around the league are ignoring LoMo and charismatic swing. Morrison is hitting .234 with 6 home runs and 14 RBI’s this season. Those numbers are not great, but he has posted a .268 batting average with 5 home runs and 10 RBI’s this month. If LoMo can keep it up, he should find himself amongst the leaders in the coming weeks.
