Peter Alonso earned yet another accolade after a stellar season that saw the first baseman rise to the #2 prospect in the New York Mets organization according to MiLB.com.

On Sunday, Alonso was named to the 2018 All-MiLB team.

Alonso opened the 2018 season in Class-AA Binghamton before earning a promotion to Triple-A Las Vegas. Between both levels, Alonso hit .285 while cranking out an MiLB high 36 home runs (tied for the most) and 119 RBI.

Alonso also participated in the Arizona Fall League earlier this year and played in 27 games. Despite hitting at just a .255 clip, he managed to hit six homers while driving in 27 RBI.

Alonso will likely be invited to big league spring training, but ultimately open 2019 in Las Vegas.

Alonso was drafted in the second round of the 2016 MLB Draft out of the University of Florida.
