Third baseman Kris Bryant, second baseman Addison Russell and outfielder Kyle Schwarber were the Cubs’ representatives. Earlier this week, Bryant was named the National League Rookie of the Year.
This year’s American League Rookie of the Year, Astros shortstop Carlos Correa, also made the Topps squad.
Topps has been naming rookie teams since 1960. The Topps Rookie Cup is awarded to one player at each position, a right-handed starter, a left-handed starter, a reliever and — for only the second time — designated hitter.
The N.L. champion New York Mets placed pitcher Noah Syndergaard and outfielder Michael Conforto on the Topps squad, while the Miami Marlins also added two players — catcher J.T. Realmuto and first baseman Justin Bour.
Others making the team were outfielder Randal Grichuk (Cardinals), DH Miguel Sano (Twins), left-handed pitcher Carlos Rodon (White Sox) and reliever Roberto Osuna (Blue Jays).
Past winners of the Topps MLB All-Star Rookie Team include MVP winners such as Buster Posey, Ichiro, Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan and Cal Ripken Jr. Eighteen former winners have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
