For Example say Mig Cabrera, next year will he be eligible for 3b right away or only if he gets the games (I assume he will be listed as a 1b and will automatically be eligible there
You mentioned Yahoo in your title so here you go, directly from Yahoo:
"Batters need either 5 Games Started or 10 Games Played at a position to gain eligibility. Pitchers need 3 Starts to gain SP eligibility, 5 Relief Appearances to gain RP eligibility."
So, in the case of MCab, he had 14 games started at 3B this year so he will still have 3B eligibility going into the 2009 season.
