The first update in MLB’s All-Star voting came out Monday and a Pittsburgh Pirate is in the thick of things in a voting race.
Adam Frazier, who is tied for the MLB lead in hits, sits behind only Ozzie Albies of the Atlanta Braves in voting among second basemen.
Frazier is batting .332 with an OPS of .863 and 24 runs batted in so far this season.
Frazier currently holds 12% of the vote, while Albies has 17%. Directly behind Frazier in voting are Gavin Lux of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Nico Hoerner of the Chicago Cubs and Jake Cronenworth of the San Diego Padres.
With the MLB’s rule that every team needs to be represented by at least one player, Frazier is the likeliest shoo-in for the Pirates rep. He’s been the best player for the team all year and is enjoying the best season of his career at 29 years old.
