Los Angeles Angels phenom Mike Trout currently leads all of the American League after one week of All-Star voting having racked up 764,007 at the time of writing.

Trout has almost 100,000 more votes than next best, Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista.

The 22-year-old already has an enviable amount of accolades in his short career, having been named an All-Star twice, the American League Rookie of the Year in 2012 and he is a two-time Sliver Slugger winner.

Also on the list is retiring Derek Jeter, who currently sits just behind Bautista in terms of number of votes, but leads the Shortstops by some distance.

Jeter, 39, is currently in his 20th season with the New York Yankees and announced before the start of the year that this would be his last.

The future Hall of Famer is eighth on the all-time hits list with 3,363 and is already a 13-time All-Star. 

With five weeks of voting left, nothing is guaranteed, however, barring injury Trout and Jeter are as close to a guarantee as you can get.

If the voting stopped today, the American League All-Star team would look like this:

First base: Miguel Cabrera, Tigers

Second base: Ian Kinsler, Tigers

Third base: Josh Donaldson, Athletics

Shortstop: Derek Jeter, Yankees

Designated hitter: David Ortiz, Red Sox

Catcher: Matt Wieters, Orioles

Outfield: Mike Trout, Angels

              Jacoby Ellsbury, Yankees

              Jose Bautista, Blue Jays
