Position Eligibility

Postby jfranks09 » Thu Feb 23, 2012 6:00 pm

Hey guys, i got a question maybe someone would know. i play in a keeper league and i drafted Victor Martinez late in the draft, for keeper purposes. after doing that i was wondering if he would keep his C eligibility next year on Yahoo's system. any ideas? Thanks in advanced.

I feel that whatever Yahoo designated him for positions this year, he should maintain them for next year since there will be no games played to base them on. Currently he's C/1B, so I'd like to think he hangs onto that. I can't think of a previous player who has been out for a year and had dual eligibility to compare this situation to, though, so I'm taking an educated guess.

I would also think that this would be how it worked ...... IF the Tigers don't attempt to to bring him back at the end of the season. I know that everything has stated he will miss the 2012 season, but who knows if he gets ahead of schedule & the Tigers find themselves in a dog fight or something.
