Phase Two Rules

Examples from Phase Two drafts in 2008 for the Redbirds and Three of a Kind Leagues. (Note: we were late in the spring so we were drafting more than 8 rounds per submission).  Because of the Live Draft, teams are starting off with fewer than normal roster sizes.  It's likely we'll need at least four submissions for Phase Two.


We need to run Phase Two drafts until all teams have a legal roster.  To help you determine what your team needs, here's what each team is lacking:

At this stage, although 2 teams still need players, this is the end of the draft phase.  Teams now enter the normal transaction phase.


Team Batters Needed (minimum 14) Specific Positions Needed Pitchers Needed (minimum 12)
Bellerose 1 OK OK
Turley 1 2B OK


Notes: This chart refers to meeting the roster minimum requirements and may mean that minor leaguers are being used to qualify you at certain positions. There is also the strong possibility that a player with eligibility at multiple positions is counting at more than one position.  This is just a rough roster check - Please check your own roster to be sure.  You'll get a chance later on through free agency to make sure you have a valid lineup.  Since you can put pitchers in any spot regardless of "SP" or "RP" designation, we're merely counting pitchers, not determining whether or not you have the right mix of starters and relievers.
