It was surprising to see just two Rays make the voting list after they were the AL World Series representative.

The 2020 All-MLB team voting is now up on MLB.com. Voting will end on November 13 (2 PM eastern time), and first and second teams will be announced in early December on MLB Network.

Altogether, six first basemen, seven-second basemen, nine shortstops, seven third basemen, seven catchers, five designated hitters, 14 outfielders, 20 starting pitchers, and 12 relief pitchers can be chosen.

Here are 10 of the most glaring omissions from the All-MLB voting.

Some other players other than the 10 named below who could have a gripe about not being included are (but not limited to) Lourdes Gurriel Jr., Didi Gregorius, Ian Happ, Dustin May, Anthony Santander, Christian Vazquez, Byron Buxton, Tyler Duffey, Ke’Bryan Hayes, and Marco Gonzales.

1

Willy Adames, Rays (SS)

Half of his 48 hits went for extra bases (15 doubles, eight homers, one triple) as he had an OPS+ of 124. He was great in the field (although he was snubbed as a Gold Glove finalist), and it’s also surprising that only two Tampa Bay players can be voted to make an All-MLB team.

2

Jeimer Candelario, Tigers (3B)

Candelario’s .872 OPS is higher than three of the third basemen that can be voted for. It was a breakout season for the 26-year-old who had career marks of a .223 batting average and .693 OPS in 1,161 plate appearances entering 2020.
