I don't think you should add money to people who lose players to DL because that allows people to take more risks with injury prone players. It should be at their own risk and should not be rewarded for that.

In our league, we use FAAB for all pickups. DL and Minor League Replacements plus the normal pickups. For DL and ML replacement , the players are linked and the replacement must be dropped when the original guy is active again. The replacement gets the same salary as the DL / ML guy. == When we are bidding on a DL / ML replacement player we bid zero and this signifies that the player is linked. This system works very good and it takes away the advantage of the "first come, first get" replacements. I highly recommend it.

So who added Acevas? And when?

And if this really bothers you (or your league as a whole) you really should go to a site that has continuous waivers and there are no free agents (or some hybrid)
