Rebuilding Major League Baseball teams have always been a point of interest for me. Seeing the potential in a team and how that grows into the future. Young guys hitting their ceiling and leading a team to the playoffs, or repeated mistakes from an organization causing them to have to more time in the league’s basement.
Right now, almost a third of Major League Baseball is rebuilding, looking to gain assets and develop their players to become World Series contenders
This article is going to review each of those rebuilding teams, analyzing the best and worst pieces on the roster, as well as the farm system to see what young players could be ready to contribute for their big league clubs within the next year or two.
Some notable teams not included in the list are the Oakland A’s as they have not had the chance to go full-blown fire sale just yet, as well as the Seattle Mariners, Cleveland Guardians, Los Angeles Angels, and Minnesota Twins as they were all either in playoff contention in 2021 or were expected to be and look to be heading that way once again in 2022. The last team not included is the Arizona Diamondbacks as I am not really sure where the team currently stands. Hopefully, once the lockout is over, we can figure out which direction this team is heading in.
Also, all of these rankings are fairly close to each other for the most part. I do believe the number one team does outrank higher all the others on the list, but it doesn’t mean that the rest of the teams are super far behind.
I would love to see your rankings in the comment section and we can talk about why we feel the way we do about any of the teams I talk about here.
