The LABR AL-only league held their auction draft last night and here is a link to the results.

Auction results of note:

Brett Lawrie - $28

Yu Darvish - $18

Yoenis Cespedes - $15

Joe Mauer - $20

Albert Pujols - $41

Prince Fielder - $32

Mike Trout - $8

Carl Crawford - $23

Dustin Ackley -$19

Jason Kipnis - $19

Jesus Montero - $18 - at utility, not catcher

Manny Ramirez - $3

Some thoughts after the jump:

Lawrie's $28 bid was the 3rd highest among third baseman behind only Evan Longoria ($33) and Adrian Beltre ($29). Matt Wieters went for $22 in the auction, behind only Carlos Santana who went for $24. Wieters is closing the gap between himself and Santana for top AL catcher.

Rays starter Matt Moore was auctioned at $20, which was the 9th highest among starting pitchers. Here are the starters who had higher auction prices:

Justin Verlander -$29

Felix Hernandez - $27

CC Sabathia - $27

Dan Haren -$27

David Price - $27

Jon Lester - $24

Jered Weaver - $23

C.J. Wilson - $23

Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went for $40 in the auction, one dollar behind Albert Pujols, making Pujols the player with the highest auction day price. Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez went for $36 and Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer went for $25.
