The major league 1988 Rule V Draft was held December 5 in Atlanta, GA. 13 players were drafted by major league teams at a cost of $50,000 each.

In an unprecedented move, the Atlanta Braves selected the first player in the draft from themselves. A clerical error had left Ben Rivera unprotected, and the Braves had to use the first pick to reclaim him.
