Fans can vote for the 2019 All-MLB Team, which the Los Angeles Dodgers are represented on the ballot by Cody Bellinger, Walker Buehler, Clayton Kershaw, Max Muncy and Hyun-Jin Ryu.
Fans can vote once every 24 hours for the players at each position they felt were best during the regular season. Voting ends at 2 p.m. PT on Tuesday, Dec. 3, and first and second teams will be announced at the 2019 Winter Meetings in San Diego.
A combination of fan voting and voting from a panel made up of former players, baseball officials, media members and broadcasters will determine the choices who comprise the 2019 All-MLB Team. The first and second teams will be revealed Dec. 10.
The All-MLB Team is made up of players from both leagues. There will be three outfielders named to the first- and second-teams, regardless of which position they play; five starters and two relief pitchers will be selected.
Bellinger got off to a historic start in 2019 and went on to earn a Silver Slugger Award and MVP. He became the first player in Dodgers franchise history to win a Gold Glove, Silver Slugger and MVP in the same season.
Buehler didn’t earn any hardware but he too put together an impressive campaign. He finished the year 14-4 with a 3.26 ERA and was entrusted with starting Game 1 of the National League Division Series. That additionally left him aligned to start a potential Game 5 at Dodger Stadium.
Buehler logged six shutout innings in the opener against the Washington Nationals, then held them to just one run over 6.2 frames in the decisive Game 5.
Kershaw failed to meet the standard he’s set with dominant seasons but still had a productive year. He placed eighth in voting for the NL Cy Young Award, with Buehler finishing one spot behind him.
Muncy proved his breakout rookie season wasn’t merely a flash in the pan by batting .251/.374/.515 with 22 doubles and a career-high tying 35 home runs to go along with 98 RBI. Muncy also demonstrated versatility in the field by shining both at first base and second base. His productivity earned Muncy a first career All-Star Game selection.
Ryu spent much of 2019 as the NL Cy Young Award favorite but seemingly lost the award due to some regression during the second half. He finished second in voting after going 14-5 with a 2.32 ERA. Ryu is a free agent and is said to have interest in re-signing with the Dodgers.
