In a few weeks, we’ll be running a two-team mock expansion draft here at MLBTR.  Currently, we’re creating 15-player protected lists for each of the existing 30 teams.  You can catch up on the rules for player eligibility here.

So far, we’ve covered the RangersMariners, Athletics, Angels, Astros, Twins, Royals, Tigers, Indians, White Sox, Rays, Yankees, Red Sox, Blue Jays and Orioles.  The Giants are up next.

We’ll start by removing free agents Hunter Pence, Jeff Samardzija, Tony Watson, Drew Smyly, and Kevin Gausman.

Buster Posey, Brandon Belt, and Brandon Crawford will make the protected list by virtue of their no-trade clauses.  I’ll also protect Mike Yastrzemski, Alex Dickerson, Mauricio Dubon, and Logan Webb out of the gate.  So these seven players will be protected:

Buster Posey

Brandon Belt

Brandon Crawford

Mike Yastrzemski

Alex Dickerson

Mauricio Dubon

Logan Webb

That leaves eight spots for these 26 players:

Shaun Anderson

Tyler Anderson

Abiatal Avelino

Tyler Beede

Sam Coonrod

Johnny Cueto

Jaylin Davis

Steven Duggar

Wilmer Flores

Enderson Franco

Aramis Garcia

Jarlin Garcia

Trevor Gott

Jandel Gustave

Evan Longoria

Conner Menez

Reyes Moronta

Wandy Peralta

Dereck Rodriguez

Tyler Rogers

Sam Selman

Chris Shaw

Austin Slater

Donovan Solano

Andrew Suarez

Kean Wong
