Rule Clarification request
« on: 28 Jul 2018 9:54:37 AM »
Is a player who is showing to have a Full contract but who was signed this recent offseason to a 1-year FA deal eligible to be retained for 2019? If so how will his 2019 salary be determined?

Doesn't the retain ability depend on the age of the player?.  Last year I signed Luis Cessa to a 1 year $550 K contract and this year he was renewed at $551 K as a year 2 player. . I also signed Whit Merrifield to a 1 year $850 K contract and he was renewed this year  at $693 K as a year 2 player. Dont know if that helped.

It depends.

Any player signed during tier 3 becomes a FA after the season, regardless of service time.

For players with less than 6 years service time signed to a deal during tier 2, if you click on the player you should see a line “player type when contract expires” that will tell you what group the player will be in for the next season; salary for that player will be determined by the standard calculations, subject to a maximum 20% pay cut.

ETA: if you don’t see “player type when contract expires” on the payer page, he’ll be FA after the season.
