Tuesday afternoon, Major League Baseball announced their selections for their inaugural All-MLB teams.

Listen to your team news NOW.

New York Yankees second baseman D.J. LeMahieu was named a first-team selection along with New York Mets ace Jacob DeGrom and first baseman Pete Alonso.

Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman was named to the second-team.

DeGrom had a special season in Flushing, sealing his second of back-to-back Cy-Young awards, becoming just the 20th pitcher in MLB history to win the award multiple times. He also had a league-leading 255 strikeouts in 204 innings pitched.

Alonson won the National League Rookie of the Year, slugging a new rookie-record 52 home runs, breaking a mark previously held by Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge, along with 120 runs batted in.

With all the injuries the Yankees had in 2019, setting an MLB-record for most injured players (30) in a single season, LeMaiheu was one of the bright spots who helped lead them to their first American League East title since 2014.

Chapman went 3-2 with a 2.20 ERA, 37 saves and 85 strikeouts in 57 innings pitched.
