2014 Top 300 Overall

Monday, July 22, 2013


Here are some very preliminary 2014 rankings for your perusal. Try not to take the lists all too seriously; I haven't actually done projections for any of these players and many, many changes will be in store for the first official rankings in January.

 

Players set to become free agents this winter are listed without a team, while players with contract options are listed with stars. Players are listed at positions they're likely to qualify at next year, though there are still question marks there. Edwin Encarnacion is probably the biggest; he has 10 games in at third base so far. That's where I'm listing him, but he's far from a sure thing to qualify.

 

These aren't true keeper rankings, since only the 2014 season is being taken into consideration here. But if you're looking to make trades in keeper leagues in the coming weeks, I hope this piece will help you along.
