Rookies & AA Players designations

with 2 comments

After consulting the Vice Commissioner (Rules) and the Rules Committee Alternate the league is making the following designations moving forward.


Any player whose rights are not controlled by another team will be considered a rookie if he was a fringe player the previous year or did not have a card the previous year and has a full time card this year for your team. 

I think this had some confusion in the past.


AA are players who are currently fringe who have NEVER reached full time player status in SABLE.  Teams may continuously hold the rights to an AA player acquired in the AA draft or by signing AA players from your prospects until a full time card is acquired.  Each AA player signed will hold 1 of 5 AA roster spots on your team.  If the player is ever released before reaching full time status, for any reason, you no longer hold the rights to that player and he becomes eligible for the next AA draft.  Before the draft each season you will need to decide what to do with the player’s rights whether he has a card or not.

When a signed AA player becomes a full time player 2 things can happen.

  1. The player who owns the rights to the AA player decides whether to sign him to a full time roster spot or release him.
  2. If the player is released, before becoming a free agent, if the team listed on the player’s card is a current team in our league  the player becomes a Rookie since his rights are no longer owned by another team.  If that manager decides not to sign the player then the player becomes a free agent and becomes available for the draft.

I think that sounds simple enough.

  2. The AA players & rookies for this year have already been determined so we’ll keep this years list current. But in checking for next years AA classification we’ll use the updated designations.
