Development List (Minor Leagues Only)

With approval of the MLB Commissioner, a player on a minor league Domestic Reserve List can be placed on the Development List if the player is at the parent organization's Minor League Spring Training Complex or at a club-approved training facility for the purpose(s) of conditioning and/or development, or if the player has been loaned to a club in another MLB organization, to a club in the Mexican League, or to a club in an independent MLB partner league
NOTE: There must first be an agreement in place between MLB and the partner league before players under control of MLB organizations can be loaned to a club in that league.   

A player on Optional Assignment from an MLB Reserve List (40-man roster) can be placed onto the Development List of the minor league affiliate to which he has been optioned, but only with consent of the player.  

A player cannot be placed on the Development List for the purpose of injury rehabilitation or disciplinary action.

A player can be placed on the Development List only during his minor league club's regular season, the player must remain on the Development List for at least seven days, and the player must be reinstated from the Developmental List no later than the day after the conclusion of his minor league club's season.

A player on the Development List counts against the in-season minor league 180-man Domestic Reserve List (or MLB 40-man roster if the player is on Optional Assignment), but he does not count against the minor league club's Active List roster.  

A player is paid by the MLB club while he is on the Development List.

    I like that the team was absolutely committed to not losing back-to-back games on a walk-off passed ball.

    And the funny thing is Rucker was the only Cubs pitcher tonight to post 0 runs allowed in the box score. You know things are really out of hand when Ross gives the okay for a Maples appearance.

    AZ Phil,

    Is there a reason Preciado hasn't been in an ACL game in about a month?

    i'd like the 2021 version of whatever d.ross is smoking bringing m.rucker into a bases loaded, 2 run lead in the 4th situation.

    dude saw the situation and said "gimmie that guy with the 8.44era 1.59whip" as the first pen option to protect a lead.

    rucker has been in 13 games and given up runs in 8 of them.

    Thanks for posting the video. He seems a little hesitant on the base paths. Crazy thing is he's clearly out-pitched the Cubs staff ace since joining the Cards - WTH has happened to the Professor?

    bit of an odd pause/delay in the middle of the video for some reason.  there was a better cut video of his baserunning out there, but it seems to have been removed from Twitter.

    long story short, he's as timid about baserunning as he is about throwing a baseball anywhere but to a catcher off of a mound.  we saw a little of that with the cubs, but not piling up a bunch in a single inning.

    I searched the internets and struck out finding video of Big Jon's baserunning exploits

    i highly suggest seeking out a highlight reel of his baserunning tonight.

    Looks like after tonight, Jon Lester will need just one more win to reach 200 career wins - notwithstanding it helps the Redbirds, hope he gets it this year.
