Rule tweet proposal (call-ups)
« on: August 30, 2018, 10:58:57 AM »
Currently the rule passed last year does not allow prospects to be called up in Bush League until after their first MLB AB or IP.  It makes no sense to force teams to miss out on the debuts of their most promising prospects.  I propose that the rule is changed to allow call ups when the player is called up in real life.

I imagine this will have no issue passing through quickly.  I hate how it is worded, I just worried about any necessary checking to ensure that the player was actually officially called up before approving.

Just make the rule state that call up has to be reflected in Fantrax.  The little flags show it when there in the minors with a green flag.

This should be fine, but could cause a little more work. The yankees called up Domingo Acevedo for the 2nd game of a double header in June/July. However, Sonny Gray went 5 or 6 innings and he was not needed. While the notes of the player should detail the call up, the player may not have any stats to prove said call up.

Should just require about an extra 15 seconds of research or so  :iatp: :iatp:
