So, my league rules say that while the MLB rookie eligibility includes the days on the MLB active roster, we don't. In our league a player is considered a rookie based strictly on AB/IP.
While Kimbrel was a good example of someone who didn't hit the active roster dates, Mejia of the Mets was an example of a player who was NOT a rookie based strictly on active roster days. Half of the "best prospect lists" listed him, and half did not because he wasn't a rookie. I only saw one that said explicitly that he is being listed as a prospect even though he isn't a rookie because people keep asking about him.
Everyone gets confused by this. For fantasy league purposes, much easier to have a league rule modifying the MLB rule.
