What does this mean?

Postby crapshooter » Sun Mar 24, 2013 8:21 am

On todays transactions report it shows a friend of mine has been assigned to his major league team. What exactly does this mean? I see this on a lot of transactions and never knew just what it meant.

if i understand what you are asking, it means he has been added to the 40 man roster. who are you talking about, maybe that will help.

okay gotcha.
its just basically a filing with MLB letting them know that they will be keeping the prospect for the upcoming season. Each team brings in approx. 50 prospects a year, and not all of them are kept each year. next season they will probably have to make a decision as to the 40 man roster, opening him up to a rule V draft if they dont protect him.
hope that helps.

Ok thanks. I couldn't see him on the 40 man roster because he was just in high A last season.
