When building your fantasy baseball roster depth on Draft Day, it’s always important to know which players are most likely to be kept up in the majors rather than be shuttled back and forth to the minor leagues. The following is a list of players who are out of Minor League options which means they cannot be sent back down to the minors without being put on waivers first. This can be a factor when deciding position battles late in spring training for teams.

Players listed with asterisks (*) following their names indicate they are not currently on the team’s 40-man roster.
