Winter may still have its grip on most of the country, but fantasy baseball fans can take some comfort in the fact that spring training is in full swing. That is right, the pine tar, treated leather gloves, bat flips, traditional organ music, nachos and sliders galore are present once again in Florida and Arizona, and will be coming soon to a stadium near you.
I know I am not alone in having some leagues drafting already, but with March being actual fantasy baseball draft season there is no better time to update and start rankings for 2019. So without further ado here are my top 300 rankings.
In what has been one of the worst and slowest offseasons in recent memory, at least there has finally been some movement with Manny Machado and Bryce Harper finding new homes that come with large paychecks. Neither player's individual fantasy value figures to be impacted that much by the change of scenery, but there could be some residual impact for other Padres and Phillies hitters, respectively.
Craig Kimbrel and Dallas Kuechel have yet to sign, but it's not like these rankings won't change between now and Opening Day in the first place, right?
