CINCINNATI (FOX19) -
Zack Cozart maintains a decent lead in All-Star balloting with the fan vote deadline looming.
Cozart leads all National League shortstops with 1,915,806 votes – more than 258,000 more than Dodgers’ shortstop Corey Seager.
He leads all NL shortstops in batting average, on base percentage and slugging percentage.
Cozart is trying to become the first Reds player voted to the NL’s starting lineup since 3B Todd Frazier in 2015 and the first Reds SS voted to the starting lineup since Hall of Famer and 12-time All-Star Barry Larkin made his fifth and final start in 2000 in Atlanta.
