Minor League Contracts & Roster Rules

MINOR LEAGUE CONTRACTS & ROSTER RULES 

1. A player with no prior MLB or minor league service who signs a minor league contract ("first contract") or a free-agent with prior MLB and/or minor league service who signs a minor league contract must be added to an MLB club's Domestic Reserve List or International Reserve List when he is added to a minor league club's Active List or when the contract is filed with the MLB Commissioner (whichever comes first). Contracts must be filed with the MLB Commissioner within 20 days of signing.

2. A player must be added to a Domestic Reserve List immediately if the player is sent outright to the minors, is acquired in a trade, or is selected in the AAA Phase of the MLB Rule 5 Draft.

3. With the consent of the player and the club, a player who has not previously signed an MLB or minor league contract may be "Signed for Future Service" (contract is for the following season) if the player signs a minor league contract after July 1st but before January 1st and is not placed on a minor league club's Active List, Injured List, Temporarily Inactive List, or Military List  prior to the conclusion of the Minor League season. (Attendance at a post-season Instructional League and/or participation in Instructional League games do not count). The player cannot be released until he spends at least 15 days on a minor league active list or receives a (minimum) 15-day trial in Spring Training.
NOTE-1: The deadline to sign a player for future service was temporarily extended from December 31st to January 15th beginning in 2022. 
NOTE-2: Beginning on July 1, 2023, a player eligible for selection in the MLB Rule 4 Draft (First-Year Player Draft) cannot be "Signed for Future Service." 

4. An international free-agent with no prior MLB or minor league service or a player who was eligible for selection in the MLB Rule 4 Draft (First-Year Player Draft) who signs a minor league contract as a Non-Drafted Free-Agent (NDFA) after the draft must be added to a minor league reserve list and to a minor league club's Active List within 15 days or when he plays in his first game (whichever comes first). The player cannot be released until he spends at least 15 days on a minor league active list or receives a (minimum) 15-day trial in Spring Training.

5. A player who signs a minor league contract after being selected in the MLB Rule 4 Draft (First Year Player Draft) must be added to a minor league club's Active List with 15 days or when he plays in his first official minor league game (whichever comes first), but the player does not count against a minor league reserve list until the day after the conclusion of the MLB regular season or until he plays in an official minor league game (whichever comes first). The player cannot be released until he spends at least 15 days on a minor league active list or receives a (minimum) 15-day trial in Spring Training.

6. A minor league player eligible for selection in the Rule 5 Draft cannot be added to an MLB Reserve List (40-man roster), traded to another organization, or transferred from one minor league reserve list to another within the same organization, beginning;with the filing of MLB minor league reserve lists in November and extending through the completion of the Rule 5 Draft.

7. With the approval of the MLB Commissioner, a club may assign (loan) a player signed to a minor league contract to the Active List of a minor league club in another organization, to a club in an MLB Partner League, or to a club in the Mexican League. However, the player must be returned no later than the day after the conclusion of his club's season. 

8. An MLB player who was sent outright to a minor league club during the previous season or after the conclusion of the previous season cannot be tendered a minor league contract for the following season with a salary less than 80% of his previous season's salary (what he was actually paid that season).

9. If an unsigned MLB player is outrighted to the minors after the conclusion of the MLB regular season and then is not tendered a minor league contract by January 15th, the player is a free-agent.

10. If a minor league player under club control (a minor league "auto-renewal" player) is not tendered a salary addendum by March 15th, the player is a free-agent.

11. An MLB club can automatically renew a minor league player's contract no more than six times, so a club can unilaterally control a minor league player (that is, a player not on an MLB 40-man roster) for no more than seven minor league seasons. For purposes of determining eligibility to be a free-agent, a player does not accrue a minor league season if the player spends the entire season on an MLB Active List, MLB Disabled List(s), and/or other MLB inactive list, or if the player spends an entire season on the Restricted List, Disqualified List, Suspended List, Ineligible List, Voluntarily Retired List, and/or Military List. Also, participation in a post-season instructional league, the Arizona Fall League, and/or international winter league(s) do not count toward a minor league season.
NOTE: Beginning on June 5, 2023, a player who is 19 or older on the June 5th prior to signing his first contract can have his contract renewed no more than five times and will remain under club control for only six seasons before he will become eligible to be an MLB Rule 9 minor league free-agent. (This rule does - NOT - apply to any player who signed his first contract prior to June 5, 2023). 


MINOR LEAGUE MINIMUM SALARIES

Salaries are paid weekly and are pro-rated.  

BEGINNING IN 2023: 
AAA: $35,800
AA: $30,250
Hi-A: $27,300
Lo-A: $26,200
ACL/FCL: $19,800
DSL: $3,000 (plus room & board) 


MINOR LEAGUE SERVICE TIME & ROSTER LIMITS

An MLB organization may carry no more than 180 players on its aggregate Domestic Reserve List from minor league Opening Day up until 5 PM (Eastern) on the 5th day after the final game of the World Series, and no more than 190 players on its Domestic Reserve List beginning at 5 PM (Eastern) on the 5th day after the final game of the World Series up until minor league Opening Day. 
NOTE: Beginning at 5 PM (Eastern) on the 5th day after the final game of the 2023 World Series, the Domestic Reserve List limit will be 175 during the off-season up until MLB Opening Day, and then 165 beginning on 2024 MLB Opening Day up until 5 PM (Eastern) on the 5th day after the final game of the World Series. 

An MLB organization may carry no more than 35 players on its International Reserve List (if the MLB club has only one DSL Affiliate) or no more than 70 players (if the MLB club has two DSL affiliates).  

Once a player is moved from a club's International Reserve List to a club's Domestic Reserve List, he cannot return to the International Reserve List without consent of the MLB Commissioner. 

Only players on the International Reserve List can play in the DSL. 

If an MLB organization exceeds its Domestic Reserve List or International Reserve List maximum roster limit, the organization has up to 48 hours to make whatever roster adjustments or moves necessary to return to (or below) the reserve list limit.   


ESTABLISHING MINOR LEAGUE RESERVE LISTS PRIOR TO RULE 5 DRAFT 

A club's Domestic Reserve List and International Reserve List must be filed with the MLB Commissioner on the second Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving (November 14th in 2023).

1. No more than 38 players may be placed on the roster of a club's AAA affiliate when the reserve lists are filed. A Rule 5 Draft-eligible player on a AAA roster can be selected only in the Major League Phase of the Rule 5 Draft.
NOTE: The AAA roster is used only for the purpose of determining eligibility for selection in the Major League Phase of the Rule 5 Draft. Any Rule 5 Draft-eligible player on a club's minor league Domestic Reserve List or International Reserve List who is not on the AAA reserve list when the rosters are filed is eligible for selection in the AAA Phase.  

2. If a Rule 5 Draft-eligible player on a club's minor league Domestic Reserve List or International Reserve List is not placed on the AAA roster when the reserve lists are filed, he cannot be moved to the AAA roster until after the conclusion of the Rule 5 Draft.

3. If a Rule 5 Draft-eligible player on a club's minor league Domestic Reserve List or International Reserve List is placed on the AAA roster when the reserve lists are filed, he cannot be removed from the AAA roster until after the conclusion of the Rule 5 Draft.
NOTE: A minor league player eligible for selection in the Rule 5 Draft cannot be added to an MLB Reserve List (40-man roster), traded to another organization, released, or transferred from one minor league roster to another within the same organization, beginning with the filing of MLB minor league reserve lists and extending through the completion of the Rule 5 Draft.

4. If a free-agent is signed to a minor league contract during the period of time between the date that the reserve list are filed and the Rule 5 Draft, he can be placed on the 38-man AAA roster, but only if there is a slot available.     

For the purpose of determining minor league roster limits & restrictions, a minor league player accrues a year of "service time" for every season in which the player spends at least 30 days on an MLB and/or minor league active list and/or injured list, unless the player spent the entire season on the Injured List.

1. Service time accrued by a player while assigned to a club or clubs in the Dominican Summer League (DSL) and/or Venezuelan Summer League (VSL) does not count when determining minor league roster limits and restrictions for minor league clubs in domestic affilated leagues.
NOTE: Although the VSL has been defunct since 2016 (last season was 2015), there are players in the minor leagues today who accrued minor league service time while assigned to a VSL club back when the VSL was still an active minor league.   

2. A position player making a position change to pitcher or a pitcher making a position change to position player receives a one-year exemption from minor league service time restrictions. However, a position player being converted to a pitcher may not be used as a position player in a minor league game during the exempt year, and a pitcher being converted to a position player may not be used as a pitcher in a minor league game during the exempt year.

3. A player on a minor league "rehabilitation" or "conditioning" assignment does not count against the Active List or Reserve List of the affiliate to which he is assigned.

4. A maximum of three players on a minor league Injured List, Restricted List, and/or Military List may be assigned on a "rehabilitation" or "conditioning" assignment to any one minor league affiliate at any one time, but there is no limit to the number of players who can be on a "rehabilitation" or "conditioning" assignment at the organization's Spring Training Complex (including a club's Arizona or Florida complex league affiliate). There is also no limit on the number of players on an MLB Injured List, Restricted List, and/or Military List who can be assigned on a "rehabilitation" or "conditioning" assignment to any one minor league affiliate at any one time.

5. A player who has been "Signed for Future Service" can be carried on the roster of a DSL affiliate only. A player with "Signed for Future Service" status does not count against the International Reserve List roster limits until DSL Opening Day. A maximum of 12 players "Signed for Future Service" may be assigned to any one DSL affiliate at the same time. 
NOTE: Beginning on July 1, 2023, a player eligible for selection in the MLB Rule 4 Draft (First-Year Player Draft) cannot be "Signed for Future Service."

    Things I've been wrong about:

    -Tauchman is fine as a 4th OF. I knew that. I just want a better LH DH option and he was really the DH for us until Seiya got hurt. I'm glad Mervis is getting a chance at it. Caissie is coming for that job for sure. But Tauchman continues to be highly useful as a 4th OF with Seiya being hurt

    -I wanted Yency to go to get guys at Iowa a chance. Guys like Palencia and Sanders or RileyT. Maybe even Hodge! But Yency has been better the last two plus weeks. He did hit 96 the other day. He was 93 in Texas to open the season.

    -Leiter has his split working enough. It just needs to stay there

    -I was surprised Jed picked Wisdom over Cooper. I wonder if this happens if Seiya wasn't hurt. Wisdom has more power. Cooper is the better hitter. Jed picked Wisdom and Wisdom had an option left as well.

    -Palencia just doesn't miss enough bats. Similar to ManRod, just two yrs younger. ManRod is killing AAA for TB right now!

    Things I got right so far:

    -Hendricks. Sorry Kyle. You got paid though!

    Jed, you missed there.

    -Smyly. If Jed could've traded him before or during ST, then he should have and saved some cash.

    -Mastro.  Not a LH DH. Pinch runner. Defensive utility. Maybe he's better than Madrigal but didn't get a legit chance to prove it.

    -Luke Little is good. He's had one bad outing. That's it. Needs to get better entering with guys on base. But he needs to stay in MLB.

    -Oh yeah....Morel is doing fine at 3B! He'll get better as well!!

    bellinger "right rib contusion"

  • Childersb3 (view)

    South Bend just lost the lead in the bottom of the 9th on the weirdest scenario, ever.

    It's absolutely pouring rain....men on 1st and 2nd, 1out....JPatterson asks for a new ball, but no time out was called....he throws the old ball toward the dugout (not sure if it rolled out of play).....the ump declares the runners get two bases each so one run scores. Then a single up the middle ties the game.

    The rain was coming down in buckets at this point.

    Just weird

  • crunch (view)

    ...and bellinger is gone in the 7th because of that 2nd blown chance and the wall he bounced off of...

    hopefully his rib cage/shoulder feels better tomorrow, we just got happ back.

  • Childersb3 (view)

    Phil,

    Any thoughts on Y. Rojas' stuff and Y. Melendez's game (I believe I've asked about him before, sorry)?

  • crunch (view)

    wow, things are moving fast.  hopefully it continues.

  • crunch (view)

    morel with 4 clean plays in 4 innings...showed off his 100000000mph arm a couple times.

    cody bellinger not having a good 4th, though...5 run leads are handy when your CF is making your pitcher have a 5-out inning.  2nd blown chance was ruled a hit even though it went in/out of his glove...1st was lost in the lights, also ruled a hit.

  • crunch (view)

    welcome back happ!  double off the wall 1st PA back.

  • crunch (view)

    oh yeah, totally, i was just chiming about why i fan like i fan.

    i would like nothing more than hendricks to keep on hendricks'ing.  guys with his stuff can throw for a long, long time as long as it works.

    he velocity is actually up a minor amount this year.  it's really "damn" when a guy like him not only has gas in the tank, but it's looking like it was years ago.  he added a curve a few years ago and it helped a little bit, but he's throwing it less and less while the fb/change combo are less effective.

    CRUNCH—There is no one person in this community I’m talking about.  My remarks were not directed at you or anyone, but at a tone I’ve noticed lately. 

    You have a great, dry sense of humor and there is thought behind your comments.   You and I don’t always agree but I always understand your position.  

    Lastly, and I’ll be quiet, I agree with you on Hendricks.  We can dislike the recent performance but still love the guy.  Lots of questions about his future.
