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 leader in selections is Shohei Ohtani, who has been named an All-MLB player six times. Ohtani is also the only player to be named to both teams in the same season (as a designated hitter and starting pitcher respectively), accomplished in 2021 and 2022, and is the only player to be named to the first team twice in the same season, in 2023. Freddie Freeman has notably been named to an All-MLB team in each of the first five seasons of the honor's existence.

Description edit

The roster of each team consists of one catcher, four infielders (one for each position), three outfielders regardless of position, one designated hitter, five starting pitchers, and two relief pitchers. Before the 2022 season, the designated hitter was only used in the American League (as well as interleague games hosted by American League teams), except during the COVID-19-affected 2020 season.
