    List of "Not Active" Minor Leaguers in the player Pool

    I have some of my league managers complaining to me about my waiver system which is currently set up to be "wait until called up to the majors". The problem is simple, there are tons of minor league players who have never been to the big leagues available to add already.

    People are having a tough time distinguishing whose already available and who is potentially available. Is there any list or resource that I can show them to calm them down? Would be great if you could sort the player list by "Not Active" players but that doesn't seem to be a sort option.

    • You can check out the list of forced players. Go to your league's scoring and settings and click on "view list of forced players". This is a list of all players that were in the minors or unsigned FAs at the beginning of the season. Since you opted for the wait for call up setting, none of these guys would have been available in your league at the start of the season. Of course, some of them have been called up by now and many of the FAs have signed with and are playing for teams now.
      I'm not sure if this helps with your situation, but it does provide a list. You could also look at players on the Players page using the 2014 season totals filter to confirm if a player has appeared in an MLB game yet.
