Sneaky Rookie Eligible Players?

Recommended Posts

***NOTE*** this thread is about players who have appeared in the major leagues

I'm in a league where the minors draft occurs immediately before the auction. The result is that you can poach a player who has played in MLB and may even be slated for an MLB role in that season so long as they weren't kept and meet MLB rookie requirements.  Last season there was a biggie with Chris Paddack.

Do you know of any under the radar guys who accrued MLB service time, but are technically still rookies?

Does Alex Reyes qualify? 

 

Nope, he barely is over the limit... was last season too.

Some good names mentioned above  maybe Hunter Harvey? could be the closer for the Orioles

kind of an interesting one is rafael dolis. used to be a cubs prospect, jays signed him last month after a few years in japan. he pitched a little in the majors back in the day but is still under the 50 IP rookie cap. jays signed him to a big league deal and he's lined up for a setup role in their pen, and could even ascend to closer if he does well and giles is traded. has good stuff, 97 heavy FB etc. 

just had his appendix out today apparently so he might start the season on the DL but he's more of a long-term play anyway

some other names not already mentioned - (not sure about service time on these, just the IP/AB limit) - austin hays, seth brown, mauricio dubon, abraham toro, tony gonsolin, andres munoz, emmanuel clase, ryan helsley. brendan mckay right on 49 IP

Gotta love those guys who are almost rookie eligible after coming up in 2016.

Randy Dobnak. Great team and excellent offense. Bonus: lots of juicy matchups in that division.  Does have to worry about Pineda in a few months
