The -Only League Landscape

National League Outfielders

by Scooter Hotz


You’re going to spend a lot of money in the outfield. Granted, a lot of that is because standard leagues have more outfielders than any other positions. That’s not the only reason, though. The defensive requirements are a little more flexible than they are in the infield, so the player pool is more diverse, including players as different as Billy Hamilton and Kyle Schwarber.

Five of the 10 most expensive position players in the National League were outfielders last season and six NL outfielders went for $30 or more. Let’s take a look at the most expensive outfielders in 2016 in NL-Only leagues:
