How players are added to a Fantasy Baseball available player list
We are working to expand the Available Players "in-season" and pre-ranking "preseason" lists. There is no set time frame for the addition of players to Yahoo Sports Fantasy Baseball. Players are added to the game, during the season, as soon as possible.
Note: All players added to the game will follow your league's waiver rules.
Players will be added to the available pool, as soon as possible. This requires approval from a third party, so we are unable to comment on the timetable for addition of any specific players.
If your league uses the setting "Wait until called up to the Majors," the player also will need to be added to the major-league team's 25-man active roster to be eligible for your league's player pool. The addition to the player pool, in most cases, will be made that night in the nightly update. Due to this, the player may not be available in the Fantasy game before their first actual MLB game.
To find the list of players that are added to the game:
- Click Players from the league homepage.
- Select MLB Roster Changes to view the latest updates.
Players who show as "Activated" are available as free agents as they already existed in the available player pool.
