Description:
The 1992 MLB Expansion Draft was held November 17, 1992, in New York City. This expansion draft was conducted by Major League Baseball to stock the major league rosters of the Colorado Rockies and Florida Marlins, new major league expansion franchises that were set to start play in the season. The Marlins joined the National League East division and the Rockies the National League West. All three rounds of the 1992 Expansion Draft were televised by ESPN.

Expansion draft

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 each round. At the end of each round National League teams could protect an additional three players and American League teams could protect four more. To further protect the American League teams, a maximum of eight AL teams could have three players chosen.

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.

Players who were free agents after the 1992 season were not eligible for selection in the Draft, but the new teams were not restricted in offering contracts to any available player. The Rockies signed their first free agent, Andres Galarraga, to a one-year contract the day before the Expansion Draft.
