A trio of Reds are in the hunt for the MLB All-Star Game
CINCINNATI, Ohio (WRGT/WKEF) -- The first update of the National League All-Star voting is in, and a handful of Reds made the cut.
It's no surprise that Scooter Gennett leads all Reds with 309, 512 votes so far. The clutch second baseman is currently in third place among National League players at the position. He is buried behind Braves rookie Ozzie Albies. The youngster is one of the many Braves making an impact in All-Star voting.
Eugenio Suarez is sitting at the four spot among National League third baseman. An early stint on the disabled list from a broken thumb is hindering his push for the Midsummer Classic. Over the past month he is white hot, and is batting .312 with 7 home runs and 22 RBI. If he hadn't missed time from the injury, he may be farther up the voting charts.
Joey Votto is the last of the Reds trio to be considered for the All-Star game. He is a perennial vote-getter, but currently is just fifth among National League first baseman. He is off to a slow start, which isn't uncommon for Votto. He tends to heat up big come the second half of the year.
