Justin Mason’s Top 50 1st Basemen- June 30, 2020

With baseball officially inching closer to an actual season, it is time to update draft ranks for those of you that are like me and still have leagues that still need to draft. I will likely be updating each set of ranks I release once or twice before opening day as news of the schedule, players opting out of the season, and other information could shake things up tremendously. However, here are my current first base ranks as of now. (Beginning of tiers are highlighted in blue)

Seems awfully aggressive on D’Arnaud given his timeshare at C and Freeman never misses games and they have a glut of DH candidates. I mean, it’ sfar enough down the list that it probably doesn’t matter much, but still . . .

Also , typo on Thames – he’s with the Nats now.
