Draft picks are allowed to be traded, but no supplemental picks will be given at the end of the draft for traded picks

In-Season Farm Pickups
Each owner has 5 MiLB 'pickups' that they may use during the current season. Pickups may be traded.
Players must be added via the regular Yahoo add/drop procedures, i.e., they must be in the Yahoo database before they can be picked up (the Yahoo league setting for 'New Players Become Available' is 'Wait until called up to Majors').
Players must be rookie-eligible when they are picked up (< or = 150 AB; < or = 50 IP).
Pick ups must be announced after they are dropped (demoted), and before they clear waivers.
Example announcement: "Using my #2 pick, sending Strasburg to the farm"

Farm Movement
A farm player may be promoted as soon as he is available in the Yahoo database by adding him to your active roster and (if necessary) dropping or demoting another player.
A farm player can be demoted to an owner's farm by simply dropping him via Yahoo add/drop -- no announcement is necessary.
A farm player may be promoted and demoted for the entire season if he was on a farm roster to begin the season, or was acquired via an in-season farm pick.

1. Players eligible for the MLB portion of the draft are those players listed on the 40 man roster as of Dec. 27, 2013. mlb.com will be the site used as reference.
2. If a player is on the 40 man roster as of Dec 27, 2013 but is not taken during the MLB draft and they are below 150 ABs or 50 IP, they will still qualify for the MiLB draft.
3. If a player has surpassed either 150 ABs or 50 IPs before the season begins, he is no longer eligible for the MiLB draft.
Cuban/Japanese signees follow the same rules: If they are on the 40 man roster, they qualify for the MLB draft. If they are below 150 ABs or 50 IPs, they also qualify for the MiLB draft.
4. Free agents or unsigned players not currently on the 40 man roster by Dec 27, 2013 can still be drafted in the MLB draft provided it is well known that he is not a prospect (for example:  Nelson Cruz, Masahiro Tanaka). This will be at the discretion of the Commissioner.
5. Prospects (below 150 ABs or 50 IP) drafted in the MLB draft i.e. those who are on the 40 man roster as of Dec 27, 2013, are no longer eligible to be sent down to the managers farm team. He must either be kept on the MLB roster or dropped. If dropped, that player will be available for other managers to pick up and place on their MLB roster only.
6. A prospect may be called up to a managers' MLB team and sent down as many times during the season even if the player goes over the 150AB/50IP limit during the year. Once a player exceeds the limits they must be kept on the MLB roster or dropped before the roster submission deadline date the following season.
7. Each manager will have a 12hr window in which to make their pick. The clock starts once the manager picking before them has made their selection. If the 12hr window has been exceeded the ext manager can make their pick. The manager who missed their selection make their pick at any time.
