    When will Yahoo start putting players on the DL?

    I have a ton of players on various Fantasy teams which have been placed on the DL by their respective teams and Yahoo has not done so. It is hindering my ability to make moves to cover holes. Whats the deal? Are they waiting till opening day?

    • Was wondering the same thing.....here is Yahoo's explanation:

      "Prior to the season, in many cases a team will announce that a player will start the season on the DL. This only indicates the club's intention to place him on the DL. Until the player is actually put on the official Major League Baseball DL, he cannot be placed into the DL position in Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Baseball. Most actual transactions will not take place until just prior to that particular team's first game of the season. This means that the player will be given DL status following the nightly update after their team plays their first regular-season game."

    • Yahoo has no control. They can't put players on the DL until the actual team does. I have seen some players on the DL already, but like you, I'm stuck waiting for the Damn Yankees to put Teixera, and Jeter on the DL. I hope it happens soon.
