I only have a minute, so this answer might not be 100% accurate, but it will get you a looooong way.
- In general, we look at what positions a guy qualified for the previous year, and that is what they start the year with.
- If I guy played but didn't qualify for any positions the previous year, I *think* we give him whatever he played most.
- If he didn't play at all the previous year, we just trust what our provider tells us for his position. We used to wait for him to play and see what position he played, but that caused more problems than it solved (I believe Johnny Cueto and Alexei Ramirez were players in that discussion).
