Whoops. My friend and I were talking about him. I asked him to find his 3b eligibility and he said he didn't qualify.

For deeper leagues, Adam Lind loses OF. Omar Infante loses SS.

if I remember correctly for yahoo it's 5 games started or 10 games played.
Albert Pujols yahoo profile has him at 1B/3B, but in 2011 he played 7 games and only started 4 games. so he doesn't qualify for 3B.

Youkilis should keep 1B eligibility in yahoo.
in 2011 he had 6 games played and 5 games started at 1B.

I thought Yahoo was 10 games started 15 games played? Idk maybe not, in that case Butler might keep 1b Eligibility also (he started 11 games at 1st).


Has anyone mentioned HanRam in this thread? He should be gaining 3B/SS eligibility unless something dramatic happens.

Jhonny Peralta is losing 3B eligibility, which I believe he had last season.

Tigers manager Jim Leyland confirmed Thursday that Miguel Cabrera will make the move over to third base to accomodate Prince Fielder at first base.

Anyone knows what happens if a player didn't play 20 games?
Automatically becomes Util only, or will get the eligibility where he played most?

Another question is for example Jeff Baker played 19 games at 1b and, 18 games at 2b, 11 games at 3b, 10 games at RF.
Is he still only a Util or gets 1b?
Cause if he still only qualifies as a DH than it's :-P


Yahoo has a 5 games started requirement, so even if a player didn't play 10 games at a position, but started 5 will gain eligibility.
For example Desmond Jennings only played 7 games at CF but he started all 7, and Victor Martinez played only 6 games at 1b but started all 6.

I wonder the same thing for Yahoo! that you wonder for ESPN, though I think they probably just become UTIL. If players are eligible at the position they played the most games in the previous year even if it is less than the required number, then Mat Gamel should have 3B eligibility and Jesus Montero and Lavarnway would both be catchers.


If a player doesn't play the minimum required games at any position besides DH in the previous season then they become UTIL only. If they hit the minimum requirements for position eligibility in the current season then they will gain that eligibility as appropriate...


ESPN eligibility rules
http://games.espn.go.com/flb/resources/ ... onal-notes

Only it's not!

Jeff Baker has 1b elig (but played only 19 games at 1b)
Aubrey Huff has RF elig (13 games)

so I looked further

Justin Christian has CF elig (played only 10 games)
Eric Patterson has CF elig (7 games)
Lorenzo Cain has RF elig (4 games)

Ok, so it looks to me that they give everyone a position, even if they do not qualify at any position.
But they only give second/thrid position if player meets the pos. elig. requirements.

Or not!
Sometimes players don't get elig. even if they meet those requirements.

For a batter to be considered eligible for Outfield (OF) he must play at least ten games in any outfield position (RF, CF, LF or any combo of the three, totaling 10)

Yet Mark Tehaen (6 G at LF + 9 G at RF) doesn't qualify for OF.

Go figure.
