    2016 Rule 5 Draft

    First claims will be processed on league date 4/9 this season.

    Rule 5 selections - Any team can select a player who is at least 26 years old and who currently is on another team's AAA or LM roster. These claims may be made between league dates 4/9 & 5/2 of the current season by offering its own current season draft pick between pick numbers 31-54 (inclusive). A team making a claim can not be taken over the salary cap by a claim. You may name one or more players to drop contingently upon signing the Rule 5 player to keep the claiming team under the cap.

    Players must have at least one year of experience by the end of the season they are selected, or they will be returned to their original team in the next preseason without receiving compensation for the pick used to acquire the player. The idea is to select players who would be useful on Active rosters but who otherwise would sit in another team's minor league system.

    Newly added FA's & Traded players - when a player is received in a trade, added via free agency, or acquired via Rule 5, he is immune to a Rule 5 claim for 24 hours / 8 sim days. (This gives the manager time to move the player to his Active roster.) If a player is received and remains in AAA or LM beyond this time period, he may be subject to a Rule 5 claim and be lost to another team.

    How to submit a Rule 5 claim - A claiming team must submit the claim by PM to myself and to the owner of the player's current team. In the PM you must send a link to the player being claimed, and list the compensatory pick that is being sent in exchange for the player. Claims will be on a 1st come basis, except those received prior to 4/9 of the current season. (Claims received prior to 4/9 will not be processed until that league date, or as soon as practicable thereafter.) If multiple claims are received prior to the 4/9 start date for the same player, the highest pick offered will determine which claim will be processed. Claims received prior to 4/9 will be invalidated if the player is not eligible for selection at that date (such as if he is moved to the Active roster before 4/9).

    I will reassign eligible claimed players to their new teams after checking cap space, generally within 24 hours of the time a proper claim is made. I will then leave a note in this thread to let everyone know who has recently been acquired, and for use at the end of the season in checking whether the player is to be returned to his original team.

    Note that, once a valid claim is made by PM on or after 4/9, that player may not be moved to the original owning team's Active roster prior to my processing the claim to be retained by the original owner. The player immediately becomes a member of the claiming team. Claims made prior to 4/9 are not protected in this way until 4/9.

    Please let me know if you have any questions about this process.

    Note in particular about unowned teams: Players on unowned teams are ineligible from being claimed until the team has been owned for at least 24 hours.

    Please note that Twin City and St Louis are ineligible due to being unowned.

    I am also making the executive decision to make Las Vegas ineligible. Doughboy hasn't logged in since July and is about to time out.
