2019 Summer Draft
« on: 1 Jun 2019 7:45:56 PM »
The draft is set to go live on June 3rd at 12:00:01 AM EST, so the Rockies will have 24 hours from that point to make their pick.

Please review the Official Rules regarding the draft, posted for your convenience below:

Quote
VIII. (Summer) Draft of Unaffiliated Players
A five-round Draft of Unaffiliated Players will occur in June, beginning on or near the same date as the MLB Amateur Draft.

A Team must make either one Round 1 selection or two selections total in the Draft of Unaffiliated Players each season.

Players eligible for the Draft of Unaffiliated Players will be limited to:

Any Player not on a Team roster, not a Free Agent, and either:

Eligible for the MLB Amateur Draft occurring in the same calendar year, or

Professional players under contract with an MLB-affiliated or independent franchise who have not exceeded 130 MLB career at-bats or 50 MLB career innings pitched during the most recently completed season.

Though a Player may normally meet the eligibility requirements for the Draft of Unaffiliated Players, the Executive Committee reserves the right to declare any Player ineligible and designate him for entry into the Player pool as a Free Agent during the following off-season:

The Executive Committee will designate such Players as ineligible no less than 10 business days prior to the Draft of Unaffiliated Players.

Such Executive Committee action will be primarily limited to Players entering MLB from other professional leagues or from advanced amateur national programs. (Note: Nippon Professional Baseball and Cuba are, respectively, examples of professional and advanced amateur national programs.)

The order in which Teams select Players during the Draft of Unaffiliated Players will be in reverse order of previous season final record.

In the event of identical records by two or more Teams, the order of those Teams will be determined by their records two seasons ago. This process continues until identical records are no longer found.

Determination of best record will be based on regular season won-loss record.

Players selected during the Summer Draft do not count against roster totals during the Summer Draft. All drafted players will be added to Team rosters at the conclusion of the Summer Draft and GMs will have until the subsequent roster lock to meet roster requirements.

If a Team selects an ineligible Player or passes on the opportunity to make a selection within 24 hours from the time the Executive Committee notifies the Team its pick is up, the Team's pick will be skipped but will remain active while the Summer Draft continues. The skipped Team may then make its pick at any point, though any player selected before the skipped Team makes its selection will be ineligible to be picked by the skipped Team. Once a Team's pick is skipped that pick cannot be traded. Repeated failure to make selections within the 24-hour window may result in disciplinary action under Rule II.H.

Players selected in the Draft of Unaffiliated Players cannot be traded during the current season.

2019 rule changes of interest:  Will another committee member update this?  I do not recall the changes that were made that affect the draft and am not remembering where it is.

Time to strap up tight and adjust your cups!!  The 2019 DMBO Draft of Unaffiliated Players begins tomorrow morning, or overnight if your sleep patterns do anything to resemble mine! 

Let’s try to keep this strand focused on process and “finer points” (if any exist) of the DMBO summer draft.  A separate strand has been made available for blow-by-blow analysis of selections and how they fit (or don’t) with their new DMBO teams.

However, if you have a question about how the summer draft works PLEASE feel free to post it in this strand.

Following are a few points about our league’s summer draft to refresh your memory, or for first timers to help you to adjust to the league’s summer draft:
A)  At 00:00:01 EDT tomorrow, June 3, 2019, the Colorado Rockies are on the clock with the first selection.  Yes, this is technically before the MLB draft begins, but unlike the real-life baseball draft, DMBO GMs have 24 hours to make their selection.  As such, if the Rockies wish to examine the order of the first ten picks in the MLB draft before making the initial DMBO selection, that is quite allowable and doable.

B)  A key change from the past few years is that 2019 draft picks may be traded while they are on the clock.  However, the trading of an “on-the-clock pick” does not extend the 24-hour period for a selection to be made before the next pick becomes the active pick. 

C)  Eligible players for the DMBO draft are those: 1) Eligible for this year’s MLB amateur draft; 2) Players with existing contracts with MLB affiliated teams who have never been a member of a DMBO roster (Note-Players selected through the MLB International Signing Period, must have been selected prior to the beginning of the 2019 MLB draft to be eligible for the 2019 DMBO summer draft); and 3) Those never included as eligible in the DMBO winter draft.

D)  The Executive Committee (EC) reserves the right to declare any player as ineligible, but that clause will not be applied in 2019.

E)  If a team fails to select within the allotted 24-hour period (as noted before) the next pick becomes the active pick.  However, the team that did not meet their deadline may make that selection at any time even though their exclusive period to add any of the available eligible players has lapsed.  If two teams arrive at a trade agreement for an “on-the-clock pick” in the middle of the night with 45 minutes remaining during that exclusive right to select, don’t get in a huff if the trade isn’t approved in time if the pick moves onto the next selection with no regard to whether or not the targeted player is plucked off the list in the interim.

F)  A draft pick is not official until confirmed by a member of the EC.  That committee member will first check on the actual eligibility of the player before confirming the player in question.

G)  Selecting teams can expedite the EC’s selection review by including the player’s position, school (high school or college, as applicable) or current MLB organization (as applicable).  Identifying someone as the latest “hot shit-ticket from Idaho” doesn’t do much to help unless the player was drafted from the University of Idaho Vandals, and even then might be apt to leave the decision up to the EC as to which Vandal named Joe Smith was intended.

H)  Teams who feel they will not be able to select within the 24-hour window are free (but not required) to submit a prioritized list of players who if available will become the EC’s template to make the selection as the team’s proxy.

I)  Likewise, a team can instruct the EC to act as proxy to select the highest available player as determined by the order of choice from the MLB draft.

J)  There are 250 selection in this year’s DMBO Draft of Unaffiliated Players.  Teams are encouraged to have a weighted list that minimally equals that number.

 As requested above, following is the language excerpted from the 2019 iteration of league rules that pertains to the summer draft (please excuse pagination issues)....

VIII. (Summer) Draft of Unaffiliated Players

     the MLB Amateur Draft.

B.  A Team must make either one Round 1 selection or two selections total in the Draft of Unaffiliated
     Players each season.

C.  Players eligible for the Draft of Unaffiliated Players will be limited to:

     1.  Any Player not on a Team roster, not a Free Agent, and either:

          a.  Eligible for the MLB Amateur Draft occurring in the same calendar year, or

          b.  Professional players under contract with an MLB-affiliated or independent franchise who
               have not exceeded 130 MLB career at-bats or 50 MLB career innings pitched during the
               most recently completed season.

     2.  Though a Player may normally meet the eligibility requirements for the Draft of Unaffiliated 
          Players, the Executive Committee reserves the right to declare any Player ineligible and

               other professional leagues or from advanced amateur national programs. (Note: Nippon
               Professional Baseball and Cuba are, respectively, examples of professional and advanced 
               amateur national programs.)

               i.   Nippon Professional Baseball and Cuba are, respectively, examples of professional and
                    advanced amateur national programs.
               ii.  Those players commonly referenced as MLB international signings will not be     
                    eligible for the DMBO draft unless signed to a contract with an MLB organization       
                    prior to the Executive Committee’s declaration that the DMBO annual draft has begun.

D.  The order in which Teams select Players during the Draft of Unaffiliated Players will be in reverse 
      order of previous season final record.

     1.  In the event of identical records by two or more Teams, the order of those Teams will be           
          determined by their records two seasons ago. This process continues until identical records are
          no longer found.

     make its pick at any point, though any player selected before the skipped Team makes its selection
     will be ineligible to be picked by the skipped Team. Once a Team's pick is skipped that pick cannot
     be traded. Repeated failure to make selections within the 24-hour window may result in
     disciplinary action under Rule II.H.

G.  Players selected in the Draft of Unaffiliated Players cannot be traded during the current season.

As a heads-up to the league, the GMs of the Padres and Mets have been missing in action so far this year, and have not responded to multiple messages. The EC has decided that these teams are basically in administration, and will be adopting a draft strategy of taking the highest-drafted player from the 2019 MLB draft who is not already in another DMB organization. The Padres pick will be made as soon as the first 2 draft picks in the MLB draft are made.

As much as I hate drafting catchers, I like the Rutschman pick. He could be very special.

As we try and catch up, if you notice the pick before you has made their pick in the thread, don't feel as if you have to wait for me/EC to say the pick has validated - just go ahead and post your pick.

Up next are the Rockies - followed by:
D-backs
Rockies
Padres (EC)
Rangers
Mets (EC)
