This article is part of our Baseball Draft Kit series.
While the lengthy version of the series may debut in full for 2019 (I'll begin writing it up earlier to make things work schedule-wise), the rankings-only version is now available below.
Commentary will come in the form of other supporting articles, and debate throughout the comments section of the tiered lists themselves.
In addition to updated catcher and first base rankings, hitters at every position are tiered throughout this piece. Players' overall rankings from my latest RotoWire Roundtable Rankings are also included.
One important note: There are several players that have been optioned to Triple-A who remain listed ahead of players with a clear-cut starting role in the big leagues to begin the season. My approach would be to draft those prospects over their replacement-level counterparts when bench depth allows you to do so.
