Below are my initial 25-man rankings for 2019, certain to change as player perform or don’t perform, eat away service time, return from injury, hit the IL, etc.
- There’s not a large difference between each slot and one can certainly argue No. 25 and No. 15 aren’t that different.
- The left column (sorted) is a ranking of how good the players are. The ‘Trade’ column (not sorted) indicates trade value. This column comes with the same caveats, plus salary, control years, injury play more of a factor (injured players are not on the active 25-man, so that’s not a consideration for the first column).
- If you think No. 22 is more valuable than No. 19, that may be true and you may, but he either hasn’t been yet, won’t likely get the chance to be in 2019 or any difference one can discern is marginal at best.
- These rankings will be updated throughout the 2019 season.
