The post-Draft Report

DATE: Jan-18, 2020

The Unowned Player Draft went fairly smoothly this afternoon. The results are posted on the Message Board (Unowned Player Draft forum, 2020 Unowned Player Draft topic).

All in all, 124 players were selected for a total of 9,443K. The biggest spenders were the Expos and Dodgers... doling out 946K and 878K respectively. The TinCaps nabbed 13 players.. most of any team.

Coincidentally, there was a tie at the co-highest bid... made on Luis Arraez at 303K... by the Captains and the TinCaps. The Captains narrowly edged out the TinCaps in the tiebreaker by being #2 in reverse finish order to the #4 TinCaps. Zach Pleasac drew the other co-highest bid at 303K by the Dodgers.

The Master Roster and Player/Money Totals files have been uploaded to the website and include the results of the draft. In addition to the money totals being updated, the player totals have also been updated in the Player/Money Totals file.

Trading will remain open until February 1st and the final day to cut players without penalty is February 8th.

This year's Waiver Draft will be held on February 22nd. The deadline for submitting lists is Friday the 21st at midnight. Since the Blaze will not be participating, you can start sending your draft lists to me anytime. I'm not anticipating a lot of action since most teams are either maxed out or currently over the limit of players.

The Pelicans have cut Adrian Sampson, so he'll join the leftovers from the Unowned Draft in the Waiver Availables list... which has incidentally just been posted in the Downloads section.
