NA status in Fantasy Baseball

The "NA" under injury notes stands for "Not Active."

Why "NA" appears

You could expect to see the "NA" designation for players who:

  • Are holding out.
  • Are on the MLB Bereavement List.
  • Are on the MLB Paternity Leave List.
  • Have been sent to the minor leagues or aren't on an official 40-man roster.
    • Example: Non-roster invitees to spring training.
  • Are injured for an indefinite amount of time but haven't been placed on the official MLB Disabled List.
    • When players are placed on the DL by an MLB team, there can be a short period where a player displays NA status (as they've been removed from the MLB team's 25-man active roster) prior to being updated with DL status by our data provider.

When "NA" appears

Player designations are updated each evening as information becomes available, so the NA status won't update until the day following their MLB debut. However, if a player is in an active roster position the day they play, stats accumulated will count toward the team totals regardless of their designation.

More "NA" status info

  • The NA designation does not prevent teams from adding a player through waivers or free agency, or placing a player in an active roster position.
  • A player with NA status might not be available in a league that uses the setting "Wait until called up to Majors" for when new players become available.
  • Players with the NA designation aren't eligible for the DL spot, but may instead be added to the NA position.
