what defines a minor leaguer in your league? it'll be tough with guys like howard who got a late call up but really still has his eligibility
Those are all really good questions, that certainly need to be addressed before the league begins. What I suggest is that you discuss with all of your league mates the questions you just asked and come to some sort of an agreement. In a dynasty league it is better to discuss the parameters of the league and have everyone be happy rather than the commish set up the rules and have everyone have to listen to them.
