Offseason[edit]

1992 pre-expansion draft transactions[edit]

Expansion draft[edit]

The 1992 MLB Expansion Draft was held on November 17, 1992. As opposed to previous expansion drafts such as the 1961 draft, players from both leagues were available to the expansion clubs. Each existing club could protect fifteen players on their roster from being drafted and only one player could be drafted from each team in the first round. Then for each additional round National League teams could protect an additional 3 players and American League teams could protect 4 more. All unprotected major and minor League players were eligible except those chosen in the amateur drafts of 1991 or 1992 and players who were 18 or younger when signed in 1990.

Round 1[edit]

Trevor Hoffman, the all-time career leader in saves, was one of the more notable picks of the 1992 Expansion Draft, selected with the 8th pick overall.
