Major League Baseball Under-25 All-Star Team


  • Miguel Sano – Minnesota Twins #34

(Born: May 11, 1993) (San Pedro de Macoris, Dominican Republic)


(24)Sano to drugs. But SayYES to Miguel. Third baseman Miguel Sano is having a breakout season in his third year with the Minnesota Twins. Not only is he one of the American League leaders in home runs (18) but he is also hitting the ball out harder than anyone else in baseball. Sano is the MLB leader in perhaps the coolest category – exit velocity. With an average velocity exit of 97.8 miles per hour, according to MLB.com’s StatCast, Sano clearly has become one of the scariest sluggers in all of baseball.


  • Manny Machado – Baltimore Orioles #13

(Born: July 6, 1992) (Hialeah, Florida)


(24)After the amazing start to his young career, baseball fans in the American League East have once again become accustomed to hearing the phrase Manny being “Manny”. Unfortunately for Machado and Orioles fans, he hasn’t been very much like himself this year. By far his worst season of his already six-year long career, Machado is batting only .212 to start 2017. I still think he’s one of the best third baseman and players in all of baseball but Machado is having a very down year. If Manny was being anything like Manny in 2017, he would be the starting third baseman of the All-Under 25 team.
