Shohei Ohtani was named a finalist Sunday in voting for the Major League Baseball All-Star Game after receiving the most votes among American League designated hitters in the initial phase of balloting.

The Los Angeles Angels two-way star — who belted his 25th home run the same day — won 1,961,511 votes in the first phase of voting. He will start at DH for the AL in his All-Star Game debut in Denver on July 13 if he tops the final phase.
