If we have a guy on our minor league bench who no longer qualifies as a minor leaguer and we want to keep him we have to keep him with one of our 5 major league keeper slots. But, is a kept minor leaguer a 20th round pick (like a kept undrafted player) or a 21st round pick?

If this hasn't already been decided somewhere else then I would suggest that they be 21st rounders.

I don't think it has been addressed Patrick. Way to find the loop holes buddy.

If it hasn't been addressed, 21st rounders sound right.

Without sparking another "I hate you guys - what's wrong with this world - it is more fun to watch 2 dogs fornicating" thread from Randi - I agree with both of you. :lol:

I'd agree with 21st round pick.

Sounds fair to me. I had intended +2 in the same way as undrafted free agents (which would be round 20), but 21st round seems better.

Be seeing you,

What happens if I have 3 keepers that were undrafted this year. I understand that they are all required to be kept in the 20th round next year so I have to burn a pick in the 18th 19th and 20th rounds but what determines who is in what order? Is this order then kept for the following year? For my 18th pick in 2005 to be kept again in 2006 now I must use a 16th round pick? Not bitching - just curious. Here's a bone for you to chew on Eric - you have been pretty quiet for a while now.

Yes, you burn an 18, 19 and 20 pick. You decide the order. But that then becomes their draft slot so the next season would be a 16, 17, 18 pick.

So if you pick Jones 18, Smith 19, and Williams 20, then the next year would be Jones 16, Smith 17, Williams 18.

Cool thanks Eric. That makes the most sense.
