Outfileder (OF): Includes Left Fielders, Center Fielders, Right Fielders, and Designated Hitters.
Player positions can change daily based on what position the player is projected to play. For example: On Tuesday Cody Bellinger is playing Center Field and is an Outfielder (OF). On Wednesday he is projected to be the 1st Baseman, which changes his position on DRAFT to an Infielder (IF). Note: Player positions do not change in Best Balls.
In order for a hitters to become swap eligible, they must have had an active status at the time you drafted them which then changed to an inactive status.
Active statuses are In Lineup, Probable Starter, Starting Pitcher, and No Status.
Inactive statuses are DL, Suspended, Out of Lineup, Traded, Out, and Postponed.
When you have a swap eligible player, you’ll be notified via push notification. Click swap on the completed or live screen next to that player and you will be able to select from all undrafted players. For round drafts, players drafted in previous rounds are considered drafted.
When swapping players, the positions must match and the swap must be completed before the start of the game in which the player is playing. All swaps are final.
We use the most advanced injury news feed to determine player status. These feeds are subject to inaccuracies and delays that may affect your ability to swap a player. All player statuses and the ability to swap are as is. Sometimes a status can change throughout the day. If a player becomes swap eligible and ruled out but then changed back to questionable, he is no longer swap eligible.
Example 1: You draft Mike Trout when he has No Status. His status is changed to Out of Lineup. He can be swapped.
Example 2: You draft Mike Trout when he is Out of Lineup. His status is changed to DL-15. He cannot be swapped.
In the case that an active player becomes inactive and then active again, they cannot be swapped.
Example 3: You draft Mike Trout when he is In Lineup. His status is changed to Out of Lineup. You don’t swap him and his status changes back to In Lineup. He cannot be swapped while his status is In Lineup.
Pitchers most commonly become swappable when they are no longer the Probable Starter.
Example 4: Justin Verlander is marked Probable Starter. His manager decides to rest Verlander and start a different pitcher. Verlander will be marked OUT because he was not the Starting Pitcher when lineups were released. He will become swappable.
Pitchers that were not the probable starter are not swappable unless their status becomes inactive.
Example 5: It’s Justin Verlander’s off day and he has No Status. Lineups are released and he is not the starting pitcher as expected. He is not swapable.
If the postponed game is played on the same day then you will receive points for your players in those games as normal. If a game is postponed to a later date or called off for any reason, any players from that game who remain in your lineup will receive zero points. Drafts that are scheduled to include games from multiple days, such as some playoff drafts, will receive points for any games that are played no later than the day of the last game scheduled as part of the draft.
A game is considered suspended if it is unfinished, but to be completed in the future. At a minimum, the statistics compiled prior to the end of the games slate will count towards your teams points. If the game is suspended until a future date, points accumulated in the remainder of the game will not count towards your teams score. For any drafts that are scheduled to include games from multiple days, such as some playoff drafts, you will receive the remaining points for the any games that are completed no later than the day of the last game scheduled as part of the draft.
Your roster must be composed of players from at least two different teams.
Sometimes, if there is only one MLB game on a day, we will allow you to draft for that game and one or more games the following day. This usually happens during playoff rounds where there are fewer games. Please be aware that you are drafting players from multiple days.
If a team is scheduled to play a double header, there will never be a slate that contains both the early and late game. There may be an early slate that includes the earlier game or a later slate that includes the later game. All-day slates will only contain the earliest game. Be sure to pay close attention when drafting probable starters that are part of a double header.
Live scoring and projections are strictly for your enjoyment. We wait for official scoring to be complete before we close drafts, complete payouts, and move the drafts to results.
