Anthony Rizzo and the Chicago Cubs are out to big leads in National League All-Star voting.​

MLB released a new round of voting results on Wednesday, Rizzo leading the entire league with 874,471 votes, well ahead of the next-highest total at first base, Brandon Belt at 271,670.

Also in good position are Cubs teammates Ben Zobrist, Kris Bryant and Addison Russell, who lead the voting at second base, third base and shortstop, respectively. Russell holds a narrow lead over Rockies shortstop Trevor Story.

Cubs centerfielder Dexter Fowler has tallied the second-most outfield votes, behind second-leading vote-getter Bryce Harper of the Nationals. If the All-Star game took place today, five Cubs would start for the National League.

The All-Star Game is July 12 in San Diego.
