#Cubs Rizzo top NL All-Star vote getter

The Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo is the leading vote-getter in the National League in fan balloting for the 2016 Major League Baseball All-Star Game presented by MasterCard.

Rizzo could have plenty of company at the game, to be played July 12 in San Diego. Four other Cubs are the top vote getters at their positions, including second baseman Ben Zobrist (732,519); third baseman Kris Bryant (776,107); and shortstop Addison Russell (544,240). Dexter Fowler (797,160) is second among NL outfielders.

A two-time All-Star who is aiming for his first fan-elected start, Rizzo has received 874,471 total votes. He could become the second Cubs first baseman to win a fan election, joining Derrek Lee (2005).
