ESPN and minor leaguers

Postby Chip1010 » Wed Feb 08, 2012 6:35 pm

Hey, guys. It's been a few years since I started my own fantasy league, which I did with a lot of help from the people here. So thanks for that!

I return with a dumb question that I probably already know the answer to: Does ESPN still not allow you to pick up minor leaguers who have yet to make their MLB debut? I want to move my league from CBS to ESPN, but if we can't stash a stud prospect here and there, I think my owners would be less than pleased. Maybe we'll just stay at CBS, but I wanted to check the facts first.

Thanks for your help!

Hi -- Yes you can put them on your Bench. There is no other place to put them. == You should be aware that if your league is an Auction League, ESPN does not support that. They do not have a column to maintain Salary or Contract Years. Thanks,

Oh, really? Nice! We don't use contracts or anything like that -- we just want the ability to grab a prospect and not have to wait for him to get called up and go through waivers. Appreciate it.
