This thesis explores how the market size of Major League Baseball Teams affects their player valuations. By examining player eligibility for arbitration and free agency, and players' Wins-Above-Replacement, I determine the factors that teams value for making player valuations based on their market size. I also examine the impact of television revenue and revenue sharing on player valuations. Ultimately, I determine how smaller market teams are able to remain competitive using alternative methods of player valuations against larger market teams.
