CHICAGO -- Todd Frazier leads or is in the top five of many offensive categories among National League third basemen, yet he remains outside the top five in All-Star voting at his position.

Entering Tuesday, Frazier was leading NL third basemen in home runs (17), slugging percentage (.525) and extra-base hits (33), while ranking second in average (.284), second in RBIs (45) and fourth in on-base percentage (.350).

Frazier is blocked at the position by Milwaukee's Aramis Ramirez, New York's David Wright, San Francisco's Pablo Sandoval, St. Louis' Matt Carpenter and Colorado's Nolan Arenado.

Fans can cast their votes for starters at MLB.com -- online or on a mobile device -- using the 2014 All-Star Game MLB.com Ballot Sponsored by Experian until Thursday, July 3, at 11:59 p.m. ET. The 2014 All-Star Game will be played at Target Field on Tuesday, July 15 on FOX.

There's still time to push Frazier up the list. If not, he's a good candidate for the Final Vote.
