Dodgers right fielder Mookie Betts and former Dodger shortstop Trea Turner have been named to the All-MLB First Team.

Betts earned his second All-MLB First Team selection in his career, while Turner made his first-ever All-MLB First Team.

Betts had his best season as a Dodger in 2022. He slashed .269/.340/.533 with a .873 OPS; he hit a career-high in home runs with 35, and drove in 82 RBIs. Mookie played in 142 games this past season and was one of the main reasons the Dodgers dominated in the 2022 regular season.

Superstars Aaron Judge and Mike Trout joined Mookie in this incredibly stacked outfield.

As for Turner, he had his best season as a pro in 2022. He was phenomenal, slashing .298/.343/.466 with a .809 OPS while hitting 21 home runs, a career-high 100 RBIs, and an OPS+ of 121. On top of that, he started in 160 of 162 games for the Boys in Blue.

The rest of the First Team infield consists of Cardinals’ first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, Astros’ second baseman Jose Altuve, Padres’ third baseman Manny Machado and Phillies’ catcher and Trea’s new teammate, J.T. Realmuto.

Today, Turner, decided to take his talents to Philadelphia, as he agreed to an 11-year $300 million deal with the Phillies.

The 29-year-old was incredible during his time with the Dodgers and was a big reason for the Dodgers’ dominance.

Dodger fans will miss the combination of Mookie and Trea at the top of the lineup. Congratulations to them both on this incredible accomplishment.

  1. I personally thought we were better when Freeman batted second. I don’t think losing T Turner hurts us all that much, We can use his money to fill some holes…

  2. Not the year to start an austerity plan. We’re a 3rd or 4th place team as it stands at this moment. Could get better real fast with a couple of moves ??

  3. Ohtani better be the hire of the century for all the grief he is going cause for this team.
