Transactions , Trading , and Periods:

A: Trading is encouraged and will be reviewed by the commissioner and/or co-commissioner(s). This will be a fairly active league so I DO NOT EVER EXPECT there to be any form of veto, however to protect the league I will reserve this for review by the commissioner and/or co-commissioner(s). Trades that the commissioner is involved in will be reviewed by the co-commissioner(s) for fairness. Trade Deadline will be the second Friday in August every year. For the 2018 season the trade deadline is August 11, 2018 at 11:59 pm eastern time. 
B: Acquisitions will occur every day. There will be a weekly acquisition limit of 7 (for 7 day matchups). You are unable to pick up a player who has not previously been signed by a major league club. International players or newly drafted players. These players will be eligible for the yearly prospects draft. 
C: Players that were not in the Fantrax player pool at the time of the MLB/MiLB draft however that have been signed by a MLB team prior to the start of the yearly MiLB draft can be picked up once they become available in the Fantrax player pool. They get placed on automatic Fantrax waivers and each owner will have the opportunity to add them once they clear waivers.



There will be a 50 round slow draft the initial year with 4 hrs to make your selection. You can draft both Majors & Minors in this draft to build your team how you see fit. Trading picks will be allowed the FOLLOWING season. For our initial majors/minors draft ALL PLAYERS that have signed a MLB contract at the time of the draft are eligible to be drafted. ALL PLAYERS that have not been signed by a MLB team are not eligible to be drafted, period. New players added to the player pool that were signed AFTER OUR DRAFT cannot be picked up throughout the year and are only available during the next years prospect draft. Draft order will be determined randomly (will use Rotoworld’s draft randomizer that emails all managers the random pick results) Each manager will have UP to (please pick as timely as possible) 4 hours to make their pick. This time frame is only for the hours of 7:00 am and 1:00 am Eastern. If teams go over the allotted time frame, a player will be automatically selected for them.
