MLB Has Something Called


I stumbled across the below while surfing the internet.  Apparently when one of your players is hurt you can place him on a "list" and let him get better.  What's even cooler is that you can bring up another player toreplace the injured player.

So say you have a concussion.   There's no need to fly cross-country.   Or say your hip hurts.  There's no need to fly cross country.    Or say you have a mystery calf injury and your entire game is build on speed - you could take a few weeks off and get better rather than have the team play short handed.

I think all Mets fans are done with Ramon Martinez.  The first thing I want Gary Cohen to tell me tonight is that Martinez has been sent down and they have called up anybody who can catch.  Mr. Anybody can go 0 for 30, I'll just pretend it's the pitcher's spot.

Now about that list:
There are two Disabled Lists: the 15-day Disabled List and the 60-day Disabled List. To be put on a Disabled List, a doctor must certify a player as disabled. Players on the 60-day Disabled List do not count towards the 40-man roster. Players may be moved from the 15-day Disabled List to the 60-day Disabled List. Players may be put on either list retroactively up to ten days, beginning the day after they last played.

Wow, who knew?
