Fan balloting has concluded for this year's All-MLB Team, which recognizes the best players at each position during the regular season. The All-MLB First and Second Teams will be announced on Dec. 9 at 7 p.m. ET, live on MLB Network.
While helping lead the White Sox to their first postseason appearance in 12 years, José Abreu led the AL in RBIs (60), finished 2nd in HRs (19) and 4th in average (.317). He won the MVP six years after being named Rookie of the Year.
After missing most of Summer Camp with COVID-19, NL MVP Freddie Freeman enjoyed an outstanding season for the NL East-winning Braves, leading MLB in runs (51), finishing 2nd in MLB in OPS (1.102) and 2nd in the NL in average (.341), OBP (.462) and slugging (.640).
The first unanimous choice in the AL since '11, the Indians' Shane Bieber dominated in 2020, setting an MLB record with a 41.1% strikeout rate, recording the lowest qualified ERA (1.63) since 1969 and tying for the lowest opponents' average (.167) since '69.
Trevor Bauer became the first Red to win the award after leading the NL in ERA (1.73), ERA+ (276), WHIP (0.79), opponents’ average (.159) and shutouts (2). He ranked second in strikeouts (100) and strikeouts per nine innings (12.3).
A unanimous selection for the honor, Kyle Lewis became just the second rookie to lead his team in average (.262), HRs (11), runs (37) and walks (34) and was a mainstay on highlight reels with multiple homer robberies.
Kevin Cash was named AL Manager of the Year for leading the Rays to their first AL East title since 2010 despite having 13 players on the IL on Sept. 1. Cash implemented 59 different batting orders in 60 games and tied an MLB record by using 12 different pitchers to record a save.

The Hank Aaron Award is awarded annually to the best overall offensive performer in each league. The award was introduced in 1999 to mark the 25th anniversary of Aaron breaking Babe Ruth's all-time home run record. Aaron and a panel of fellow Hall of Famers will combine with a fan vote to determine the winners from the 14 finalists.
The Roberto Clemente Award is bestowed annually to the player who best represents the game of Baseball through extraordinary character, community involvement, philanthropy and positive contributions, both on and off the field. Every club nominates a player to be considered for the Award in tribute to Clemente's achievements and character.
Two of the season's top relievers were recognized for an exemplary 2020 as A's closer Liam Hendriks (1.78 ERA, 14 SV) won the Mariano Rivera AL Reliever of the Year Award presented by The Hartford, while Brewers rookie Devin Williams (0.33 ERA, 53 K in 27 IP) earned the Trevor Hoffman NL Reliever of the Year Award.
Twins slugger Nelson Cruz was named the Marvin Miller Man of the Year, annually awarded to the player that his peers "most respect based on his leadership on the field and in the community," while Freddie Freeman was Player of the Year and NL Outstanding Player as the MLB Players Association revealed winners of the the Players Choice Awards.
Randy Arozarena torched Houston pitching with four homers, a .321 average (9-for-28) and a 1.152 OPS in the Rays' seven-game ALCS victory. The slugger came up biggest when his team needed him most en route to becoming the first rookie position player to win an LCS or World Series MVP honor.
Corey Seager became the only NL player in history to hit five homers and drive in 11 runs in a postseason series and the first shortstop with more than three homers in any series, batting .310/.333/.897 with eight runs and 26 total bases in leading the Dodgers back to the Fall Classic.
Shortstop Corey Seager became just the eighth player to follow an MVP performance in the LCS by winning the honor in the World Series after homering twice and slashing.400/.556/.700 in the Dodgers' six-game victory over the Rays. Seager won the vote unanimously.
