Owners must fill starting lineup in auction. 

In Season – Roster 

Owners will be permitted to make daily roster changes between 
active/reserve players on their current roster 

DL players need to be activated no later than one day after being activated by MLB team. CBS will identify roster as illegal and needs to be fixed prior to the roster lock of the first game the day after activation 

Prior to the first waiver run, the salary cap will rise from $260 to and in season cap of $310. Rosters must stay below the in-season cap of $310 at all times (DL spots included) 


Free agents will be acquired through a Free Agent Acquisition Bid (FAAB) process. Each owner will be given a FAAB budget of $100 prior to the first waiver run. 

Waivers will run on Sunday Night and Thursday Night. 

Minimum FAAB bid - $1 
Maximum FAAB bid - $100 (restricted based on in-season cap of $310) 
Remaining FAAB money can be traded 

Trading is allowed. Trades must meet both the roster requirements along with work within the off-season cap. Commissioner has full autonomy on trade approval. Commissioner approval is required before trades are processed. 

Trade deadline will be 08/10/2017 



A player obtained at auction may be kept at the bid price for 2 seasons. 
Following the second season, owners must decide whether to extend that player for 2 more seasons at a $5 increase, or option the player for one more season at the same price, after which time the player would go back into the player pool. 

If the player is extended, the owner may choose after the fourth season to keep the player for a 5th year at a $5 increase, or place the player back into the pool. 

Finally a 1-time 6th year extension of +$20 increase can take place or place player back in into player pool. 

No player will be kept longer than 6 years. 

Players acquired via FAAB budget, acquired prior to the keeper deadline, will be eligible to be kept at a contract price equal to the price paid via FAAB. All other keeper rules outlined above will be applicable. 

Keeper deadline will fall on 08/16 for FAAB acquisitions. 

Teams will be allowed to keep up to 12 players. 

Total keeper contract values will be cumulatively subtracted from $260 in the next auction year. Remaining money will be available to fill open roster requirements 

Owners will designate keepers 2 weeks prior to the auction (specific auction dates to be determined yearly) via e-mail list to commissioner. Full keeper list will be published the day following deadline for keeper submission. 

Any changes made to a keeper list between the keeper deadline and auction, due to extenuating circumstances concerning a kept player (injury, etc), will be left to commissioner discretion. 

Any player may be dropped at any time without penalty, and that player's contract status will go back to 0. 

It is each team’s responsibility to make sure roster is in compliance at all times. Commissioner will spot check and back date errors.
