Four Mets on 2019 All-MLB Team Ballot; FanFest to be Held in January

Four New York Mets players are on the ballot for the first-ever All-MLB Team presented by Scott’s.

First baseman Pete Alonso (260 AVG, 53 HR, 120 RBI, 1 SB .941 OPS), outfielder Jeff McNeil (.318 AVG, 23 HR, 75 RBI, 5 SB, .916 OPS), relief pitcher Seth Lugo (6 SV, 2.70 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, 11.7 K/9) and starter Jacob deGrom (11-8, 2.43 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, 255 K) are all on the ballot for fans to select from.

Fans can vote once every 24 hours for the best players at each position during the regular season to help determine this year’s honors. First and second teams will be announced at the 2019 Winter Meetings in San Diego. Voting ends at 5 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Dec. 3.

Alonso led the majors in home runs in 2019 and was named the NL Rookie of the Year. deGrom won his second consecutive NL Cy Young Award. McNeil dabbled with the NL batting crown for a good portion of the season and belted a career-high 23 homers. Lugo was a stalwart out of the Mets’ leaky bullpen and excelled as both a long and a short reliever.

deGrom, McNeil and Alonso all represented the Mets at the 2019 MLB All-Star Game in Cleveland in July in which Alonso won the Home Run Derby in record fashion.

The Mets announced this week they will be holding their inaugural FanFest at CitiField on January 25th.
