Examining Where Teams Got Their Value in 2018

From this chart, it is fairly evident that teams generate the most value (more than a third of all value produced leaguewide) from trade acquisitions, followed by early round draft picks (who accrued more than 20% of league value) and free agent signings. It makes intuitive sense that draft picks provide less value on average the later they are picked, and the data bears this out, as each progressively later draft category provided roughly half the value of the preceding category. International free agent signings accounted for roughly a tenth of all value provided to teams in 2018, while waiver claims, purchases, Rule 5 selections, and non-drafted free agents provided limited contributions across the league. Clearly, not every team matches this pattern of construction for a variety of reasons, so let’s now look at the most and least “typically” constructed teams (where typically refers to how close to league average a team’s value breakdown by acquisition type was in 2018).

Deadline to set 40-man rosters tonight (11-20)

The Rule 5 Draft will take place on the final day of next month’s Winter Meetings (Dec. 13) and allow clubs with open space on the 40-man roster to select certain players not on the 40-man roster out of other organizations.

Let’s discuss all of our favorite potential 8th relievers and 5th outfielders! (Or Orioles opening day starters.)
