Best Answer

I do not believe the 10% answer is correct. There are 286 Div I Schools, 236 Div II Schools, and 362 Div III schools. Assuming ALL of these have Baseball teams and assuming all of the teams have 35 players on their rosters, there are over 30,000 NCAA baseball players in any given year. There are 30 MLB teams which have 25 players each, or 750 MLB player. (The teams can expand to 40 at the end of each season if desired, so there may be as many as 1,000 MLB players.) 30,000 divided by 750 would yield 40:1 odds of being drafted if EVERY team in MLB started over and had NOTHING BUT ROOKIES. A preposterous proposition at best! Therefore, the highest mathematical possibility would be 2.5%. Let's assume that each MLB team drafts 10 rookies a year. 30,000 divided by 300 would equal 1%. Still not a realistic number.

Baseball players aren't "given" names once they make it to the majors. Baseball rosters display players' legal names. Though of course, some players have nicknames that fans affectionately refer to them with. For example, David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox is known as "Big Papi," but his away jersey still reads "Ortiz."

Players that play in the minor leagues

As of 2012, the MLB players make $3,340,133 a season.

Well, let's reword the question first... A, AA, and AAA minor league players are usually already drafted by a team. In my experience, I would say that probably around 10% of minor leaguers ever have a chance at The Show. That's just the chance. Even fewer make it there and produce successful careers and end up being vested and retiring. Of the thousands of high school, college, and unaffiliated players, probably about 3 percent of those drafted or signed ever make the big leagues. Hope this helps.

There is a large range of salary that AAA baseball players will make. Usually, the range falls between $3,000 to $7,500 each month of play.
