    DL and Yahoo

    How long does it take to have Yahoo place a player on the DL. One of the manager has Aroldis Chapman on his team, but wants to place him on the DL slot . Does Yahoo wait officailly until the Reds place him on the DL? It's offical Chapman will be for awhile, so just wondering why the DL icon is not next to his name?

    • Yahoo! has to wait until the team officially places a player on the DL list. I did do a detailed check during the spring training and regular season last year in regards to complaints about players not showing on the DL for "being out a while". In all cases when matching up the timestamp of the team's official transaction of placing a player on DL and checking the timestamp of when Yahoo did this is was always done on Yahoo's scheduled update immediately after the team did 100% of the time without error. Yahoo! does this update 4 times a day, every 6 hours. Yahoo! does not put players on DL or IR until the team officially does despite what time frame a player is said or reported to be out for. We are at the mercy of the team putting folks on DL and when it comes to spring training a lot of the time it is a day or two before that team's first regular season game when they officially name and report their 25 man rosters to MLB. Hope this helps!
