2023 MLB Team nominees by position

2023 MLB Team nominees by position

It’s time for fans to make their voices heard in deciding which players should be named to the 2023 All-MLB team.

The All-MLB Awards, first established in 2019, honor the best player or players at each position across the major leagues in the past season, with first-team and second-team selections. The nominees were announced Wednesday, and fans can vote at mlb.com/allmlb once every 24 hours between now and 8 p.m. ET on November 19. (The ballot will also be available in Spanish at lasmayores.com/todomlb.)

Fan voting will make up half of the selection process, with the other 50% coming from a decorated panel of media members, broadcasters, former players and other officials throughout the game. Winners will be announced on December 16 during MLB Network’s MLB Team Showcase presented by MGM Rewards.

When casting their ballots, voters are asked to consider only performance during the regular season. Each team will include one selection each at catcher, first base, second base, shortstop, third base and DH, as well as three outfielders (regardless of the specific infield position), five starting pitchers and two relievers.

Fans will be asked to narrow down a list of candidates that includes 72 position players (nine infielders, seven baserunners, eight second basemen, nine shortstops, 10 third basemen, eight designated hitters and 21 outfielders) and 50 pitchers (26 starters and 24 outfielders). analgesics).

The Astros are the only team with double-digit favorites, and it was an even split for Houston with five position players and five pitchers. Those candidates include second baseman Jose Altuve. third baseman Alex Bregman; Designated hitter Yordan Alvarez; outfielders Kyle Tucker and Chase McCormick; starting pitchers Justin Verlander and Framber Valdez; and relievers Ryan Pressley, Brian Abreu and Hector Neres. Houston edged out Atlanta, which led National League teams with nine nominees, including the top seven MLB MVPs.

The roster of nominees includes 57 players who were 2023 All-Stars and 44 who have earned All-MLB honors in the past, including 20 from last year (12 first-team selections and nine second-team selections, with dual star Shohei). Otani was chosen for both). This is Ohtani’s third straight season being nominated for multiple positions. He was a first-team DH and second-team starter in 2021, then reversed that in ’22.

Two other topics in the field for 2023 MLB candidates are youth and international assets. Six junior players and 20 players 25 years of age or younger were nominated, as well as 45 players born in nine countries and territories outside of the 50 U.S. states.

One of the other stories to watch in the All-MLB voting is whether the Dodgers’ Freddie Freeman can beat out the Braves’ Matt Olson and the rest of the candidates at first base. Freeman is the only player to be selected to each of the past four MLB teams (either first or second team), and that streak could reach five in 2023.
