Major League Baseball is smack in the middle of its offseason, but it’s already about time to start gearing up for the 2015 fantasy baseball season, which will be here sooner than you think.

With that in mind, you’ll find a run-through of the top 10 players at each position from a fantasy perspective, along with their 2015 season age and statistics from last year. You know, to help you get ready for getting ready for your drafts in March.

For the sake of clarity and simplicity, players eligible at multiple positions (see below) are listed at the one where they hold the most value (i.e., rank highest).

Now, on to the top 10s…


These rankings consider three factors:

  • First, everything is based on 10- or 12-team mixed leagues with standard five-by-five rotisserie scoring (BA, R, HR, RBI, SB for hitters; W, ERA, WHIP, K, SV for pitchers).
  • Second, lineup construction accounts for 22 active roster positions consisting of: One each for catcher, first base, second base, third base, shortstop, corner infield, middle infield and utility, along with five outfielders and nine pitchers.
  • And third, to be eligible at a particular position, players either must have played at least 20 games there in 2013 or be in line to start there in 2014.
