Agreed with the last sentiment, and honestly, if I hadnt just read the news of the signing and then seen the pick I wouldn't have raised the question. But seems to me a player that wasnt available to the rest of teams until the last day should be an ineligible player. Rasiel went in the first round. Who knows where this guy would have.

By the same token though, I am also fine with the pick standing at this point in light of the rule not being "on the books," if thats what commishes decide.

Here is an update to article IV. This will specifically state that a player signed after the draft starts will not be draft eligible. Also will specifically state that no team may draft more than 6 players in a draft.
Both were issues brought up during this draft. These alterations without a league wide vote are justified based on historical precedents.



IV.  THE MINOR LEAGUE(prospect) DRAFT

The Minor League(prospect) draft will be a straight (non-serpentine) draft and consist of six(6) rounds.

The draft will commence and end prior to the beginning of the regular season.

The only players eligible to be drafted are players with no Major League experience at all, but belong (under contract) to a Major League Baseball team BEFORE the first team is on the clock to select and the Draft officially begins. Any player signed after the Draft begins is not Draft eligible.

The exact date for the start of the MiLB Draft will be determined by the Commissioner(s).

Here is how the MiLB draft order is determined:

Regular Season Standings
20th Place: 1st MiLB pick
19th Place: 2nd MiLB pick
18th Place: 3rd MiLB pick
17th Place: 4th MiLB pick
16th Place: 5th MiLB pick
15th Place: 6th MiLB pick
14th Place: 7th MiLB pick
13th Place: 8th MiLB pick
12th Place: 9th MiLB pick
11th Place: 10th MiLB pick
10th Place: 11th MiLB pick
9th Place: 12th MiLB pick
8th Place: 13th MiLB pick
7th Place: 14th MiLB pick
6th Place: 15th MiLB pick
5th Place: 16th MiLB pick

3rd and 4th
4th Place: The loser of the 3rd Place Game: 17th MiLB pick
3rd Place: The winner of the 3rd Place Game: 18th MiLB pick

1st and 2nd
2nd: The loser of the Championship Game: 19th MiLB pick
1st: The Champion of SSD: 20th MiLB pick

This order will repeat for all 6 rounds. The only exception to this order is for trades made involving draft slots prior to or during the draft. Also, once a team has reached the maximum number of MiLB players allowed (12), or has reached the maximum number of selections allowed (6), they are no longer eligible to participate in the draft will have their draft slot bypassed to the next eligible team.

All draft picks will be made as a post in the Draft Forum.  The draft post shall be made in the following words.

"With the (# of Pick) Overall Selection in the SSD MiLB Draft (Team Name/User Name) selects (Player Name), (Position), (Team City that player plays for).

Here is an example: "With the 1st Overall Selection in the 2015 MiLB Draft The Blue Monkeys selects Mike Trout, OF, Anaheim Angels.

Once the draft begins:

Step 1.  The first pick will have Twenty-Four(24) hours to make a selection.  
Step 2.  After his selection is made, that manager must e-mail the manager following him, to let him know it is now his turn.  
Step 3.  That manager then is now considered "On The Clock" and has Twenty-Four(24) hours to make his selection.
Step 4.  Repeat Step 2.[/strike]

It is not encouraged to take the entire twenty-four(24) hours, however extenuating circumstances may arise, and that is the maximum.

If a manager has not selected in the twenty-four(24) hour period, then next person in the draft order may make his selection, and the draft will continue in a normal fashion.  The manager that was skipped may make his selection at any time after the twenty-four hours, however all players taken from the point where he was skipped, to the time he is ready to select, will not be available for him to pick.  

If a manager selects a player already owned by another team: The selection will be nullified and the manager will be notified to select another player as soon as the mistake is discovered. The manager will not be subject to disciplinary action, however, any selection made after the selection of an owned player will stand. In essence the manager will have been skipped until another player is selected.

In the MiLB draft you may NOT trade MiLB draft picks and receive none in return or a different amount (i.e. uneven trades). (see Article VII.)

Also, if a manager can not be online, or get to the site, a post is required in advance (if at ALL possible) on the Away Board portion of the "Shack Smack" forum. The GM is also encouraged to send a message to a commissioner, or other league manager, with their selection.  That person then may make the appropriate post in the appropriate Draft Forum.  Any selections made this way, must have a notation of how and pick was made, ie. pick made via text.
