Marlins are loaded with All-Star contenders
MIAMI -- There is plenty of star power in the Marlins' everyday lineup.

Beginning on Friday, fans will have a chance to vote for them when Major League Baseball launches its All-Star Game balloting online at MLB.com and marlins.com.

The rebranded Miami Marlins have been one of the most publicized teams in the league. They've got an upgraded roster, and they're playing in the trendy new Marlins Park.

Five of Miami's eight regulars have been to at least one All-Star Game -- Hanley Ramirez, Jose Reyes, John Buck, Gaby Sanchez and Omar Infante.

There are no surprises for the Marlins on the ballot.

Fans can cast votes for Buck (catcher), Sanchez (first base), Infante (second base), Ramirez (third base) and Reyes (shortstop).

Also on the ballot are outfielders Logan Morrison, Emilio Bonifacio and Giancarlo Stanton.

A year ago, Sanchez was the lone Marlins player selected to the All-Star Game.

Reyes was a four-time All-Star with the Mets, and Ramirez was a three-time starting shortstop for the National League. This is Ramirez's first season on the ballot as a third baseman.

The All-Star Game is set for July 10 at Kansas City.
