    • Here is how positioin eligibility works according to the Yahoo Rules:
      A player will gain eligibility at a new position after five starts at that position, or 10 total appearances at that position.

      Pitchers need to make three starts to become eligible as a starter, or five relief appearances to qualify as a reliever.

      Please note the following regarding position eligibility:

      A player's position eligibility will not be adjusted prior to the beginning of the season. Example: If a player who was a third baseman primarily during his career is playing first base exclusively during spring training, the third baseman will not become eligible at 1B until after he meets the criteria for regular-season games played there.
      Players will not lose positional eligibility during the season, even if they do not appear at the position throughout the season.
      It is not possible to customize this setting within Custom Leagues. All leagues are subject to the same constraints.

    • He will get his 3B eligibility after starting five games there...
