5 Braves on All-MLB team balloting

Five Braves players are on the ballot for the first All-MLB Team, which will commemorate the top regular-season performances from 2019, the league announced Monday.

The selection of the All-MLB Team will be determined by an online fan vote as well as by a panel of baseball media, broadcasters, former players and other officials throughout the game.

A first and second team will be named with one player from each position: first base, second base, third base, shortstop, catcher and designated hitter along with three outfielders, five starting pitchers and two relievers.

Braves players with roster potential are:
• Freddie Freeman, first base: .295 AVG, 38 HR, 121 RBI, 6 SB, .938 OPS 
• Ozzie Albies, second base: .295 AVG, 24 HR, 86 RBI, 15 SB, .852 OPS 
• Josh Donaldson, third base: .259 AVG, 37 HR, 94 RBI, 4 SB, .900 OPS 
• Ronald Acuna, outfield: .280 AVG, 41 HR, 101 RBI, 37 SB, .883 OPS 
• Mike Soroka, pitcher: 13-4, 2.68 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, 142 K

The Nationals, Dodgers, Yankees and Indians also each had five players up for votes. Only Boston (7) and Houston (10) had more individual players listed. 

Fans may cast ballots once daily until the polls close at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3. Winners will be announced Tuesday, Dec. 10, during the winter meetings in San Diego.
