In an attempt to garner engagement with baseball during the November off-season lull prior to the Winter Meetings, MLB is holding its first ever All-MLB Team vote. The idea is to give fans an opportunity to vote for the best players in baseball at their respective positions. Four Brewers from the 2019 team are on the ballot: Christian Yelich, Josh Hader, Mike Moustakas, and Yasmani Grandal.
Fans can vote for players until 4 p.m. CT on December 3. The All-MLB Team will be determined via fan vote and a panel of experts. Expert panel voting will make up 50 percent of the tally, while the other 50 percent will come from the fan vote. Fans can vote once every 24 hours between now and until voting ends. The All-MLB Team will be announced on December 10 at the Winter Meetings, which will be held in San Diego this year.
There will be a first team and a second team All-MLB. Voters are supposed to consider only regular season performances when casting their votes. Each team includes one selection at each position as well as one for DH, three outfield positions (regardless of specific outfield position), five starting pitchers, and two relievers.
Christian Yelich, Josh Hader, and Yasmani Grandal are positioned well to take home at least second team honors if not first team honors on the All-MLB Team. Mike Moustakas would have to overcome names like Anthony Redon, Alex Bregman, Nolan Arenado, Matt Chapman, Eugenio Suarez, and Kris Bryant. While regular season performance in 2019 is supposed to be the only consideration in the voting process, the vote is designed like an All-Star vote as far as fans are concerned.
