    2017 Minor League Draft

    The 2017 Minor League Draft will start Tuesday, March 28nd at 8:00am

    While the draft is running, you are NOT permitted to pick up as a free agent any player who could be drafted in the minor league draft.

    Draft order is reverse of major league draft, but any expansion teams pick first.

    You have 18 hours to make your pick.

    Please post your pick in large font, bolded font, colored font, anything that will make your pick stand out from the conversations.

    Please note the name, the team affiliation, and the position so there are no questions as to who you picked.

    Once you make your pick please PM the next owner that they are on the clock.

    If you go the full allotment of time without making a pick you will be automatically skipped for all further picks. However, if you check in afterward you will only forfeit that pick. Once you miss a pick, you don't get it back, you'll have to fill out your team after the draft.

    If you pick a player that is already on a roster, or is ineligible in any way (not a pro, not rookie eligible, etc) then you lose the pick, no exceptions.

    Updated: In order to avoid errors, make sure that before you announce your pick, you check the CBS website, this first post which will be updated with all the picks and this entire thread. Checking all 3 will ensure that you have 100% accurate information.

    REMEMBER...according to the rules:

    Following the draft, only players who were on a major league roster at the end of the previous season (including the DL) and have used up their rookie eligibility may be signed as free agents until the minor league draft finishes. Any player who was in the minor leagues at the end of the previous season and retains their rookie eligibility may not be signed as a free agent until after the minor league draft concludes.
    If you are promoting any players from the minors to the majors to get extra picks in the draft, please do so before Tuesday at 8:00am.

    Come Tuesday at 8:00, Greg (Buckeye Vomit) is on the clock. Hopefully he has it ready by then.

    Greg (Buckeye Jerkfaces) won the lottery for the expansion draft and went first, so he goes after The Dude in the ML draft and since it's reversed in the mL draft, he goes first here.

    Promoted Swanson this morning so I have an empty spot. Do I get to hop into the end of round one, round 2 or do I wait until it's all done?

    Well:
    If you are promoting any players from the minors to the majors to get extra picks in the draft, please do so before Tuesday at 8:00am.
    Did you do it before 8:00am? Did you tell anyone?

    I suspect I did it before 8 AM since I was in the office at 6:45, but I don't know for sure and didn't tell anyone. I already used my mulligan in the other thread, so if you tell me to wait until the end of round 1, 2 or the end of the draft, it's really no big deal. Just let me know where I slot in.

    if you'd just posted that you made room, you'd have had a first round pick. I think you gotta wait until the end of the draft.

    Is what it is! Work has been hell, and I got hit out on a rescue call yesterday afternoon and barely even made it home for the draft. Happy to have just been there for that.

    If you remember to PM me when the draft is over and I can pick - cool. If not, I'll just waiver hunt.

    I would say since it's a missed pick, slot him in at the next available slot. Or at least round 2.

    It is not a missed pick. He has no picks. He kept 6 but promoted one to make room so he could make a pick. He's going to have to wait until the end. Please the next person.
