MLB Draft Review: AL West

David Seifert
Director of College Scouting

Closing with the AL West, here's an analytical look at how the 2015-2018 draft classes are shaping up using WAR. Based largely on one man's production, the Astros lead the West, ranking No. 2 overall in ROI. The Angels sit strong at No. 6, while the Mariners (No. 18) and Rangers (No. 19) land in the middle. Surprisingly, the A's bring up the tail ranking 25th among the 30 MLB clubs.

NOTES: All references to a prospect’s overall MLB ranking is per MLB PipelineNegative WAR is not used to calculate total WAR. For any WAR value less than zero, 0.0 is used to calculate a team’s total WAR.
