Military List

A player can be placed on the Military List after being called to active duty (this includes foreign players called to active duty with their home country's military).

1. A player on the Military List does not count against his club's Active Roster or Reserve List, but the player does accrue MLB Service Time.

2. A player can be placed on his club's Military List within 15 days of the date he is scheduled to report for duty, but only if the player is no longer physically with the club.

3. A player on the Military List must be reinstated within 15 days after being released from service.

4. A player on the Military List can spend up to 15 days on a minor league "conditioning" assignment (with pay and full MLB benefits for MLB players) prior to being reinstated to an MLB or minor league reserve list. 

5. A player who is reinstated from the Military List after the MLB Rule 5 Draft but prior to MLB Opening Day does not count against his club's Reserve List until MLB Opening Day, or up to 15 days after MLB Opening Day if the player is on a minor league "conditioning" assignment during that period of time.

    Maybe a key moment in PCA’s career tonight. He was thrown behind twice by former big leaguer Wily Peralta. No warning and Iowa’s manager is tossed defending his player. Next pitch, PCA drills over the right field wall, followed by an epic bat flip. His confidence had to be sky high after that.

    Next at bat he drills a double and then scores. PCA 9 for 18 with 3 homers since being optioned.

    almost 2 hours into a rainless rain delay.

    AND now it's postponed.  july 13th double header.

    Good rehab start for Wicks at Iowa: 33 pitches, 2 IP, 2 hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, 3 Ks. 

    Good night for PCA as well with another HR and a double.

    PCA has had 2 hits in all 4 games since going back to iowa...4th game still in progress.

    3 homers.

    looking strongly like MIL. PIT, and CIN will win tonight.  CIN still has 4 innings to protect 4 runs vs LAD.

    I thought this article quote from the Athletic by Jim Bowden was interesting (since I don’t know either reliever mentioned, Finnegan or Foley). The topic was Cubs getting bullpen help but he says the A’s probably will make Miller a starter eventually. 
    I don’t think the A’s are going to trade Miller because he has a chance to become a No. 1 starter if they develop him working toward that goal. If I’m the Cubs, I’d focus on targeting relievers such as Kyle Finnegan of the Nationals and Jason Foley of the Tigers who will come at a much lower price than Caissie and Alcántara.”

    I need to partially concede on this in that Bellinger’s strike out rate is considerably lower than other players. That said, it wasn’t necessarily my main point.

    I can see players like Swanson, Hoerner, Happ and Suzuki doing things like laying down bunts, slapping the ball the other way, etc. Focusing on contact and putting the ball in play. That just doesn’t seem to be the stuff Bellinger is made of. And that’s ok - you don’t necessarily expect that from your main power guy.

    I wasn’t meaning to put Bellinger down in this instance. More excluding him from this particular conversation.
