KEEPER RULES: 10 keepers per team. Players are signed at auction prices for up to 5 year contracts with the opportunity for 1 contract extension after year 5 for up to 10 years at $5 per year. Players acquired at auction and retained on rosters without ever clearing waivers may be kept from year to year.
FA KEEPERS (NEW): for the 2024 Auction and beyond, up to 2 FA keepers per year will be allowed as part of a team's 10 keepers. The player’s 2024 salary would be #AB/25 for hitters and #IP/10 for pitchers (from the 2023 season), and the greater of the two if there is a two-way player. A batter that has 400 AB, for example would be $16 (400 AB/25) and pitcher that pitches 150 innings would be $15 (150 IP / 10). This would further increase interest throughout the entire season, without becoming unrealistic, and act as a counter incentive to those quick add and drop FA moves.
**PLAYOFFS (UPDATED): **12-team per MLB rules. Added consolation bracket for the top 16 teams that miss playoffs- prize is +5 auction dollars for 2024.
**VETOES (UPDATED): **Trade Vetoes require 16 of 30 teams to reject.
