This article is part of our Baseball Draft Kit series.
Typically, the results of this mock draft are not released until the RotoWire Fantasy Baseball Guide hits the shelves, but we have decided to publish these early to the site this year.
We hope you find them useful as we all try to make sense of the player pool on the heels of a 60-game season. It's the Wild West out there.
A big Thank You to Greg Ambrosius and the kind folks over at the NFBC for hosting this mock draft, as well as to the rest of the participants for taking time out of their day to draft. It was a 15-team standard snake draft with 23 active roster spots (including two active catcher spots) and seven reserves, with standard roto categories and scoring assumed.
