Major League Baseball Under-25 All-Star Team


  • Cody Bellinger – Los Angeles Dodgers #35

(Born: July 13, 1995) (Scottsdale, Arizona)


(21)Bellinger didn’t make his make his major-league debut for the Los Angeles Dodgers until April 25 but by looking at his stats – you would have no idea. At only 21 years young, he already looks like one of the best power hitters in all of baseball. In less than 200 at bats this season, Bellinger has 22 home runs and 49 RBI’s, including 10 home runs in the last 10 games. Like Schwarber, he’s a flexible player that plays multiple positions, including outfield and also first base. With the abundance of riches in outfield and lack of star young first baseman, I chose Bellinger as my starting 1B and clean-up hitter for obvious reasons. Expect Bellinger to win the National League ROY unanimously in 2017 and to also be a key component of the Dodgers’ late postseason success.

  • Josh Bell – Pittsburgh Pirates #55

(Born: August 14, 1992) (Irving, Texas)


(24)The Pittsburgh Pirates are rebuilding in 2017 and things haven’t looked too bright for the Bucs. After losing all-star outfielder Starling Marte for 80 games to a PED suspension, it looked like there wouldn’t be too many shimmering rays of light. However, one positive in a season of negatives for the Pirates so far has been that it looks like they have found their first baseman for the foreseeable future – Josh Bell. At 24 years of age, he still has plenty of time to figure things out but so far in 2017, Bell has portrayed some serious power numbers (13 HR’s, 31 RBI’s).
