Minor League Rehabilitation Assignment

MLB: Per Article XIX-C of the CBA and with the player's consent, a player on the MLB 7-day DL (concussion DL) may be assigned to a minor league club for rehabilitation purposes for up to five days (maximum eight days for a pitcher), and a player on the MLB 15-day or 60-day DL may be assigned to a minor league club for rehabilitation purposes for up to 20 days (maximum 30 days for a pitcher).

A player on an MLB DL who is assigned to a minor league club for rehabilitation purposes continues to accrue MLB service time, and does not count against the minor league club's Active Roster.

There is no limit on the number of MLB players who can be on an Article XIX-C minor league rehabilitation asignment with the same minor league club at the same time.  

MINOR LEAGUES: A player on the 7-day or 60-day DL of a "full-season" minor league club (Lo-A, Hi-A, AA, or AAA) may be assigned to Extended Spring Training for rehabilitation purposes prior to the start of the minor league "short season" in June, and to a "short-season" minor league club for rehabilitation purposes for up to 20 days (maximum 30 days for pitchers) after the conclusion of Extended Spring Training.

A player on a DL of a short-season "A" league minor league club can be sent on a rehabilitation assignment to a short-season rookie league club.  

A player on a DL of a short-season rookie league club (AZL, GCL, and DSL) cannot be sent on a rehab assignmment to another minor league club. 

A minor league player on a "rehab" assignment with a "short season" minor league club does not count against the Reserve List or Active Roster of the club to which he is assigned. (There is no roster limit at Extended Spring Training).

A maximum of three minor league players may "rehab" with any one "short season" minor league club at the same time, but there is no limit on the number of minor league players who may "rehab" at Extended Spring Training.

  • RIP Arnie. We could use a lot more like you -- a man who succeeded and failed on his own terms, a true original, and, finally, a remarkable example of graciousness towards others.

  • Cubs finish 33 over at home. I was, personally, one game over at 3-2, which was one of my better years in a while.

    I do hope that's the last time we see the Cardinals this year. A lot of power, which is dangerous, particularly in a short series, and they have really shut down KB all year.

    Oh, and Jon Lester? Damn!

  • as a fan, he only "owes" us the game on the field and not getting in the way of others on his team being ready to play (imo).

    it's exponentially worse to his family and friends, but this dude most likely had 15+ years of play left and even though he just turned 24 a couple months ago he had already established himself as a top guy in the game.

  • I know what you're trying to say, Charlie, that none of us feels what his loved ones must be feeling.

    On the other hand, what makes a death like this tragic is precisely the loss, based on Fernandez's youth and brilliance, to the baseball world.

    So, for example, we can say that Princess Diana's death meant more, in aggregate, to millions of admirers who didn't know her personally than to her loved ones.

  • boston pitching snags a couple of mlb team records...

    "Over nine innings of play, Boston's staff struck out 11 straight Tampa Bay Rays hitters Sunday, breaking the major-league record for most consecutive strikeouts in a game.

    The previous record was held by former New York Mets right-hander Tom Seaver, who struck out 10 straight hitters in 1970.

    Not only that, but with a strikeout to end the ninth, sending the game into extras, Boston's staff also struck out an MLB-record 21 batters over nine innings."
