Let teams form themselves IMO, then for a potential second season allow for retentions and drafting or whatnot - by then some idea as to the development of each player will have emerged.
Not so if one group were to amass all the talent in any given area - eg all the players with majority batting attributes - robbing other sides of strength and creating an unfair allotment of players.
I see your point that all players are of basically the same ability at this stage, but each specializes in a different area. This is why an open draft is so critical in ensuring a level playing field.
