SI's David Sabino ranked the position players in the major leagues from 1 (the best) to 450 and the pitchers from 1 to 350, based on projections of their statistical production this season. The categories considered for position players were batting average, home runs, RBIs and stolen bases; for pitchers the categories were wins, saves, ERA and WHIP (walks plus hits per inning pitched). Sabino also took into account each player's career stats as well as his role on his team, his prospects for improving or declining and his injury history and physical condition. Using these criteria, SI determined each player's value ranking.
