    Forbes released it’s annual list of values for each Major League Baseball team this week, and San Diego fell in the middle of the pack.

    The Padres came in at 18 out of 30 MLB clubs.

    The team is currently valued at $600 million and made $189 million in revenue last year.

    With a $29.9 million operating income, the team is continuing to emphasize building their farm system with the hopes that the younger players being developed will be able to make a large impact in the future.

    The New York Yankees, not surprisingly, topped the list. The team is currently valued at $2.3 million.

    The most valued team in the NL West are the $1.615 million Los Angeles Dodgers, second only to the Yankees.

    Meanwhile, 2012 NL West champions San Francisco Giants came in seventh. The Diamondbacks came in No. 18. At $537 million, the Rockies ranked 25th out of 30.

    The Forbes list says the average MLB team is valued at $744 million.
