40 Man Roster
Mimics MLB’s 40-man roster. All players on 40-man count against the cap.
Non 40-Man Minor League Roster
Players don’t count against cap. Limit of 45 players. Once these players are called up to the 40-man roster, they begin a 5-year contract. Contract is the league minimum for first 2 years, then 3 years of arbitration (use FanGraphs for arbitration figures).
First-Year Player Draft
5 round draft that involves players who were drafted and signed in the MLB’s First-Year Draft.
All teams have a signing bonus allotment that gets money to it added each season depending on their standing. Any players who are still rookie eligible can be bid on.
Free Agency (slow auction)
Restricted and unrestricted free agents. You can sign MLB players for up to 4 years.
The league is going into its fifth season (one of them being a 1-year preliminary league). We have a good group of owners currently that are very active with plenty of trades.
