The most popular players in All-Star voting will be in the money — at least enough to cover part of the season's clubhouse tips.

The highest vote-getter in both leagues in the first round of the new fan voting system will receive a $15,000 bonus, according to details obtained by the Associated Press. That payment will go to the leading vote-getter at catcher and each infield position plus the top three among outfielders.

For all positions other than the outfield, the second-place finishers will receive $5,000 apiece and the third-place finishers $2,500 each.

Major League Baseball announced the addition of prize money on March 14 but did not reveal the amounts. This year's All-Star Game is July 9 in Cleveland.

Most of last year's elected starters have huge salaries this year, including Philadelphia outfielder Bryce Harper ($10 million salary plus $20 million in signing bonus payments), Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout ($16 million salary this year plus a $20 million signing bonus payment) and Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado ($26 million).

 

No hits for Tebow

Tim Tebow had no hits in his Triple-A debut. The former NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner went 0-for-4 on Thursday for the top minor league affiliate of the New York Mets. He wasn't available for comment after the Syracuse Mets lost to the Pawtucket Red Sox 6-3 in 10 innings.

 

Tulowitzki out

Yankees shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left calf strain, the 11th New York player sidelined just a week into the season.

A five-time All-Star, Tulowitzki left prior to the fourth inning of Wednesday's game against Detroit, two innings after hitting a popup in his only at-bat.
