When does DL start?

When do guys get put on the DL? Is it not until the season starts?

From the mlb.com transaction page for this month:

3/15: Seattle Mariners placed LHP Ryan Feierabend on the 60-day disabled list.


So, teams can start doing it now. On that same page, you can see the transactions from previous years, and looking at March of last year, the first one was on 3/12, a few here and there, and then a bunch starting on 3/20 through the end of the month.

Hope that helps.

For guys that they do not expect back soon, they'll pop up all though the next few weeks. Guys who are expected to be part of the 25 man roster, they usually wait until the last day of spring training.

When would you expect Gayrod to hit the DL?

Classy.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

DL doesn't start soon enough, I drafted Kelvim Escobar to stash on my DL in an AL only league, I can't wait to throw him there and grab some dazzling pitcher like Vicente Padilla ;-D

It'll happen sooner after a player's team places them on the DL.
