The reward of a great year for Dónovan Solano, second baseman for the San Francisco Giants, and Giovanny Urshela, third baseman for the New York Yankees, keep coming.
This Thursday, the Major Leagues presented the nominees to make up the ideal team of the year in the Big Top. Among the candidates, the two Creole players appear.
Seven players were nominated at second base, three from the National League and four from the American League. Solano, who hit .326, is second-best, behind only DJ LeMahieu, who hit .364 and won the Champion Bat.
Urshela, meanwhile, is one of seven candidates at third base along with two more players from the American League and four from the National League.
The third baseman had solid numbers on offense (.298 AVG, 6 HR, 30 RBI, 1 SB, .858 OPS) and is the best-performing glove performer among the nominees.
Fans have a deadline to vote until November 13 at 1:00 p.m.
The first days of December, as the MLB has not yet confirmed the date, the first and second ideal teams of the year will be announced.
