All-MLB Team

The All-MLB Team is an annual Major League Baseball (MLB) honor given to the best players across both leagues at each position during the season. Selections to the first and second teams are determined by a fan vote and a panel consisting of media members, former players, and baseball officials.[1] The honor was established in 2019.

The career leaders in selections are Gerrit Cole, Freddie Freeman, Liam Hendriks and Juan Soto, who have been named to a team in each of the first three seasons of the honor's existence. Shohei Ohtani is the only player to be named to both teams in the same season (as a designated hitter and starting pitcher respectively).

DescriptionEdit

The roster of each team consists of one catcher, four infielders (one for each position), three outfielders regardless of position, five starting pitchers, and two relief pitchers. There is also a roster spot for designated hitters in the American League (AL) on each team.
