26 round draft, 2 round supplemental draft
A player must have at least one MLB AB or IP for a specific team to be eligible to draft that player.
Then you have guys that have played for only your team and maybe a team that is not represented in the league. Say there is a guy that played for only the Royals and D-Rays. Since the D-Rays are not represented, then that guy becomes an exclusive to me.
You will also see guys drafting out of turn, which is certainly ok and almost preferred. If you see you can make your pick, go ahead and make the selection.
Say for instance I have the 6th pick, the Red Sox have the 10th and the A;s have the last pick. Even though my turn is not yet up, I can take Johnny Damon before the guys ahead of me pick.
We will likely do a supllemental 2-round draft right after the draft for our homer players, where whoever had last pick in the first draft gets 1st pick in the supplemental.
If you go to your team's official site on MLB.com, they have a history archive of every player who has played for them. The player has to have played in at least one game in the majors with that team to be eligible, though there are exceptions, which leads me to a question:
What is the criteria for the exceptions to these rules? Like we all know if a major free agent signed with a new ballclub, he hasn't played with them but he will. I guess we count that as 40-man roster? I'm assuming non-roster invitees aren't eligible since they have little shot of making the team, what about guys who signed minor league contracts?
oh and the SPBC appraoch can be utilized. Only waste one roster spot on your exclusive starters, as you can drop the one starting that day and pickup the guy starting the next day
