Welcome to the second edition of Baseball Prospectus’ in-season valuations for AL-only and NL-only hitters and pitchers. In the linked document, you will find values through games of Saturday for:

  • American League Hitters
  • American League Pitchers
  • National League Hitters
  • National League Pitchers

The formulas used to derive these valuations are not based on last year’s statistical formulas but rather on 2017 statistics year-to-date. Average salaries are based on the auction rosters for the CBS, LABR, and Tout Wars AL and NL-only expert leagues. The formulas are SGP-based off the auction rosters for CBS, LABR, and Tout.

There is plenty of data to look at in all four of the charts. If you’re just curious to know who the best players have been year to date and what they have earned, you can find that below.
