Joey Votto leads three Reds who finish among top 12 of MVP voting

Although no Reds player won the National League's Most Valuable Player Award, there were three who finished among the top 12 in voting.

The Baseball Writers' Association of America revealed the results of both the American League and National League MVP balloting Thursday night, which declared Pirates star Andrew McCutchen the winner for the Senior Circuit and Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera for the AL, and Joey Votto, Jay Bruce, and Shin-Soo Choo fared relatively well.

Votto led the trio of Reds players by finishing sixth with 149 points. Meanwhile, Bruce tallied 30 to finish 10th, and Choo occupied the 12th position by collecting 23 points. 

It is worth noting that Votto received (2) third-place votes, (8) fourth-place votes, and (7) fifth-place votes. It is the third time in his career that he has finished in the top 10, including topping the list in 2010.
