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] Each vote will have equal weight in determining the teams. Plans for the all-MLB team were announced on November 25, 2019, with the first edition of the all-MLB teams being announced at the 2019 Winter Meetings in San Diego.[2]

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.
