Fan voting for the 2013 MLS All-Star Game was been open for a week (online here or by texting 22442), and the league released some of the leaders Monday as seen above.
Sounders FC’s DeAndre Yedlin is sixth among defenders and forward Eddie Johnson is seventh among forwards. No other Seattle players were listed with the leaders.
The online and text message voting are open until July 2 and Twitter voting is open Thursday and Friday. The 10 players with the highest combined votes will make of most of the All-Star Fan XI, as Sporting Kansas City coach Peter Vermes will ultimately select a starting lineup for the July 31 exhibition against Italy’s AS Roma.
