The minor league eligibility requirements are for a career, not just the previous season. However, if any player goes to the minors during a season, they may be placed on the minor league roster regardless of their Major League record.

This was not any major blowup with people getting pissed, but the upside is that this disagreement did get the rest of the owners to agree to spend some time on a full constitution, although not until the end of this season.

To provide closure, the Commish required the offending team in this case to place Pedro and Sheets both on his active roster if they were to be kept. Sheets was kept and Pedro was dropped.

At least some good came out of it. I think I would be a little miffed if I was that owner about the sheets situation. Especially if people are still allowed to put players that are missing games but not on the dl in the injured spots.
