First Year Player Draft Guide: Introduction (EDIT)

Welcome to Baseball Farm’s 2019 edition of the First Year Player Draft guide! The goal is to provide you with strategy articles, rankings, and player capsules on players who were either drafted in the 2018 MLB Rule 4 (college) draft or signed during the 2018 international J2 signing period. These players typically constitute the player pool for new player drafts in existing dynasty and keeper leagues, which are often referred to as “first year player” drafts or “supplemental” drafts.

If you want to jump right into the rankings and player capsules, here are this year’s hitters and pitchers. If you prefer working in a spreadsheet, here’s my google doc with all of the player capsules and lists.

We’ve also compiled some strategy articles from our Baseball Farm crew and a few friends.
