2015 Top 300 Overall

Tuesday, July 15, 2014


As has become an All-Star break tradition, here’s a peek ahead at some very, very preliminary 2015 player rankings. I’m only concerned with next year here, so these aren’t true keeper rankings; if I were factoring in 2016 and beyond, some younger players would be listed quite a bit higher. As always, I’m going position by position (trying to account for next year’s position eligibility) and including a top 300 overall.

 

This winter’s free agents are listed without teams. Players facing option years are listed as “opt” in the team column.
