With four days remaining to vote, Orioles center fielder Adam Jones is falling behind in the quest for his name to be in the starting lineup of the 2012 All-Star Game.

The most recent voting results were released on Monday with Jones falling behind Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz, putting the Baltimore outfielder in fifth place. Josh Hamilton, Curtis Granderson, and Jose Bautista would be the American League starters in the outfield if voting ended today, but less than 150,000 votes separate Jones with the third-place Bautista.

Matt Wieters is currently third among AL catchers, but the Rangers’ Mike Napoli leads by more than a million votes.

Shortstop J.J. Hardy is third in the AL at his position while Robert Andino comes in fifth among AL second basemen.

Voting for the 83rd annual All-Star Game on July 10 in Kansas City concludes at 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday.
