MLB Depth Charts Team Pages Now at Baseball Prospectus

by Jason Martinez

The in-depth organizational depth charts formerly available at mlbdepthcharts.com have now officially transitioned to Baseball Prospectus! Not everything has moved, but the most important feature, the team pages, has.

Click here to access the MLBDC homepage at Baseball Prospectus. You can access this page from anywhere at BP by mousing over the "Depth Charts" button on the navbar at the top of the site, then clicking on "MLBDepthCharts Home." (Please note that the depth charts containing the playing time projections that power PECOTA are still alive and well on their own homepage, which is accessible through the same dropdown menu. I maintain both sets of depth charts, so they should match up at the major-league level.)
You'll see the links for all 30 teams on this page. From each individual page, you'll be able to jump to other team pages with the quick links at the top. I'll be re-directing all links on the home page of mlbdepthcharts.com over to BP.
And don't worry if you're not a BP subscriber. This content will remain free (although you may see some related links to content that is accessible only by subscribers).
The process to re-create features that you're familiar with at MLBDC, and new features, will be based on priority determined by reader feedback. So if there's something that you cannot function without, please send me an email at mlbdepthcharts@gmail.com, and let me know. For anything we decide is integral, we will try to create (or recreate) it here at Baseball Prospectus as soon as possible, or make it easily available on the mlbdepthcharts.com site.
This move is being made to provide me with more resources so I can continue to add great features for readers. I will also have a much easier editing system in place to ensure that the depth charts are updated as quickly as possible.
Please let me know if you have any questions and concerns.

Ooh, I love the out-of-options information. Nice addition to the site.

These are outstanding. The organizational depth piece particularly, tied into prospect rankings and integrating all sorts of content. Hurray!

Do they get integrated into the playing time forecasts used for PECOTA?

Jason maintains the depth charts for both the listings format (linked above) and the projected playing percentages on the PECOTA depth charts and projected standings so they should closely mirror each other. He's been doing both for two years now.

They're just different formats. There may be a slight lag between the two as Jason updates them, but in general, the same methodology will be used for both formats we present.

A most welcome move and a great add for BP.

Looks great.

My only slight complaint is that the 'Outside Looking In' section gets really cluttered with listing out all of the positions.

Would seem to flow better if it was broken out CA/INF/OF/SP/RP instead of each individual position. Especially since most of the positions have no one listed -- so it just has CA, blank space, 1B, blank space, 2B, blank space, etc.

Like I said, slight complaint. Looks great overall.

Very nice. You really know how to get a fella stoked for the start of a brand new season. Thanks for this great new resource.

Hot Damn! This is worth the subscription cost alone.

Can someone adjust the Mets depth chart? Johan Santana is unlikely to have his 131 innings.
