Welcome to the August outfielder rankings. Players are ranked based on how I believe they will perform in 5x5 leagues over the remainder of the season. Along with the position rankings, you'll soon find a fully updated top 300 list.

Outfielder Rankings



Dropping off: Dropping off: Ryan Braun (No. 27), Jason Bay (No. 89), Travis Snider (No. 98), Scott Hairston (No. 101), Nolan Reimold (No. 108), Scott Van Slyke (No. 113), Chris Dickerson (No. 119), Casper Wells (No. 121), Roger Bernadina (No. 124), Tyler Colvin (No. 125), Xavier Paul (No. 126), Zoilo Almonte (No. 127), Andrew Brown (No. 130)

  • Carlos Gonzalez's sprained finger was going to drop him from No. 2 to No. 6 in the outfield rankings. With Sunday's setback likely to land him on the disabled list, he comes in at No. 14 instead.
  • With Nelson Cruz's fate up in the air, I just stuck him in the 40s for now. If not for the expected Biogenesis penalty, he would have ranked right around No. 23, which is where he came last month. It sounds as though he's likely to appeal, but depending on how that works out, he might have to begin serving his suspension in September.
  • I was going to rank Shane Victorino a few spots higher, but then he went and hurt his ribs on Sunday. It's always something.
  • Houston's George Springer is the outfield prospect everyone is waiting for now, and he does debut at No. 123 this month in the hopes that he'll get a shot in September. However, someone who might be up sooner is former A's first-rounder Michael Choice. With Coco Crisp, Chris Young and Seth Smith all in big slumps and Yoenis Cespedes and Josh Reddick hardly excelling themselves, the A's outfield could use a jolt and Choice is hitting .301/.392/.460 with 14 homers for Triple-A Sacramento. He's at .349/.446/.635 in 63 at-bats since the All-Star break. I snuck Choice in at No. 127 for now.
  • If you're looking for Junior Lake, he's listed at shortstop (No. 19).
