The league recently announced the nominees for the All-MLB team. While All-League is a common award in many other leagues, it’s just the second year that MLB has gone that route. No Giants made the inaugural team in 2019, but three are nominated for the 2020 team: Brandon Belt, Donovan Solano, and Mike Yastrzemski.
And you can vote for them here.
Belt, who hit .309/.425/.591, and was worth 1.9 fWAR, has five competitors for two spots at first base: José Abreu (Chicago White Sox), Freddie Freeman (Atlanta Braves), Paul Goldschmidt (St. Louis Cardinals), Dominic Smith (New York Mets), and Luke Voit (New York Yankees).
Solano hit .326/.365/.463 and was worth 0.9 fWAR. He has six competitors for the two spots at second base: Cavan Biggio (Toronto Blue Jays), Robinson Canó (Mets), Jake Cronenworth (San Diego Padres), Cesar Hernandez (Cleveland), DJ LeMahieu (Yankees), and Brandon Lowe (Tampa Bay Rays).
And Yastrzemski, who hit .297/.400/.568, and led the Giants with 2.7 fWAR, is up against 13 players for the six spots in the outfield: Ronald Acuña Jr. (Atlanta Braves), Mookie Betts (Los Angeles Dodgers), Michael Conforto (Mets), Trent Grisham (Padres), Bryce Harper (Philadelphia Phillies), Teoscar Hernández (Blue Jays), Eloy Jiménez (White Sox), Kyle Lewis (Seattle Mariners), Wil Myers (Padres), A.J. Pollock (Dodgers), Juan Soto (Washington Nationals), George Springer (Houston Astros), and Mike Trout (Los Angeles Angels).
Well done, all three. Now go vote for them, and also vote in the even more important elections.
