The Draftpool Committee has determined that starting in 2024, and for at least the short-term future, the Annual Draft will include only players from American League rosters. The conclusion marks the first time in recent PGB seasons that no NL players will be eligible. With over 140 predominantly-NL players already occupying space on PGB rosters (about 23% total), the committee felt that adding even more players was unnecessary from both a talent and usage standpoint. The depth and quality of PGB rosters and the changing draftpool will continue to be regularly monitored, and it's expected that some NL teams or players will again become available sometime in the future.
Kudos to our committee members Russ Young, Scott Benson, Chad Boysen, Mike Mihelich, Jeff Meyer, and Chuck Tinkler for their tireless efforts at making PGB a great league for all!
