- NOW ACTIVE - Prospects Roster
- See the rules regarding prospects
- These are 5 roster slots that you can use to stash
players who have not yet played in MLB
- as you look at your roster and free agent pages,
these are the players whose name is not a link to a stats
- They don't count against your 40-man limit
- In December, they don't count against the maximum 28 players you carry over into next season - they are protected
- A move to the prospects roster is permanent for the season and you must make any moves on or before Week 21
- You can sign new players directly to the prospect roster
- There is a non-refundable "player development" charge of 250 for each player you designate as a prospect - all teams received an extra 1000 in cash a couple weeks ago to help you with the costs
- To move current players to the prospect roster, go to your current team transactions page and look for the link
- To sign free agents to the prospect roster, sign free agents as you normally do - then as you set the round and transaction, look for the special signing designation to make your choice
- Also now available - you can sign players directly to Injured Reserve - again, pick the free agent as you'd normally do and then on the transaction index look for the special signing designation to indicate that.
- Transaction warnings do not yet take these new features into consideration - those will gradually get fixed over the next few weeks, but until then you'll need to figure them out manually.
- I've tried to test everything possible, but if you find something that doesn't work right - whether with these new types of transactions or with things that have been around before this, please let me know.
- IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
- First round draft picks of 2018 are now in the player list.
You can sign them this week.
- There is a slight risk in signing draft picks - if the player does not sign by the MLB deadline (July 6 for players other than college seniors - those who have used up their college eligibilty have until 1 week before the 2019 draft to sign), the player is immediately removed from your roster and from the BWB player list.
- How to find the picks? On the player selection screen, use the "Other" filter and you'll find an option for "First Round (2018)"
- Week 11 complete - Games 65-66 posted -
