When will Lawrie and Eaton be on DL in Yahoo?

Postby mayor quimby » Thu Mar 28, 2013 4:21 pm

I drafted Lawrie and Eaton expecting to be able to stash them on my DL right away but they're not on the DL yet.

Does anyone know what the deal is?

Thanks.

Their respective teams have to place them on the DL first, if I'm not mistaken.

Freese and Hart went on for me yesterday so I'd imagine they will go on soon.

from yahoo:

Prior to the season, in many cases a team will announce that a player will start the season on the DL. This only indicates the club's intention to place him on the DL. Until the player is actually put on the official Major League Baseball DL, he cannot be placed into the DL position in Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Baseball. Most actual transactions will not take place until just prior to that particular team's first game of the season. This means that the player will be given DL status following the nightly update after their team plays their first regular-season game.

Yup. Prior to season start, teams really have very little incentive to put anyone on the DL, particularly when you consider that when they do, they can do so retroactively. So if they have a guy they know is hurt, they might as well wait and see if he makes a miraculous recovery. If he does, great; no DL necessary. If he doesn't, they put him on retroactively, and all is well.
