Spring training is finally underway, and among others things, that means it’s time for another updated version of our MLB power rankings.

We last updated these rankings Jan. 18, so any transactions or injuries that have taken place between then and now were factored into the changes you’ll see in the following rankings.

Notable additions during that span include: OF Yoenis Cespedes (NYM), SP Yovani Gallardo (BAL), OF Khris Davis (OAK), RP Tyler Clippard (ARI), RP Jake McGee (COL), SP Doug Fister (HOU), 2B Howie Kendrick (LAD), OF Corey Dickerson (TB), SS Jean Segura (ARI), 3B Juan Uribe (CLE), SP Mat Latos (CWS), RP Fernando Rodney (SD), RP Antonio Bastardo (NYM), RP Tommy Hunter (CLE).

As with any offseason power rankings, these are not simply meant to be a prediction for the year ahead, but instead a look at how teams would stack up with the rosters they currently have if the season were to start today.

Keep that in mind when considering where your favorite team falls in the following rankings, as a lot can still change between now and Opening Day.


Note: This time around, we’ve included a projected 25-man Opening Day roster for each club. The roster projections from Roster Resource served as an invaluable starting point in this exercise, though I made changes based on my own opinions.

In the following projected rosters, (R) indicates a player with rookie eligibility remaining, while a bold player is a newcomer to the team.
