Adding new players and prospects to the "available players" pool
Our Yahoo Sports Fantasy Baseball experts always add a comprehensive set of top prospects and new players to the game before we launch for the season.
During the season, new players and prospects are added to the game during our nightly system update (following their addition to their MLB team's active roster).
Keep in mind, anytime that we add new players to the "available players" pool, they're always subject to your league's waiver rules.
Viewing all available players and roster updates
- From your league's homepage, click Players
- Click MLB Roster Changes
If your league uses the "Wait until called up to the Majors" setting, prospects may not be available in the player pool until after their first actual MLB game is played, after which they'll be added to the pool (subject to waivers).
- During spring training, any player already in our system who is on an MLB team's 40-man roster may appear as active until the start of the regular season.
- Teams may announce their intention to call up a prospect, they may not make the actual transaction doing so until the day of their MLB debut.
- Similarly, prospects who make an MLB team out of spring training won't appear on an MLB roster until teams finalize their active rosters (prior to their season opener).
- MLB teams can have 25 players on the active roster until September 1st. After that, all players on their 40-man roster are eligible to be used.
