Rookie Eligibility
« on: April 11, 2006, 11:37:58 AM »
I'd like to sticky this for future reference:
A position player must have at least 45 days of service on a major league roster and/or 90 official at-bats while a pitcher must have at least 45 innings pitched in order for their rookie status to become official.

I was wondering about that last year and I couldn't find the exact numbers.  Thanks.

Looking forward to Benny Suarez's rookie of the year run.

I think my SP Roderigo Pequero should be ROY eligible this season, but he's not in game, correct? He was called up 9/1 of last season and threw 36 IP

As of this year (2019) - we removed all references to service time for rookie eligibility (thread).

Now to be eligible, the player must have entered the year in question with less than 90 official at-bats or less than 45 innings pitched.

Pequero will be on this year's ballot.

See to it that Michael Errol gets on the ballot, then.  :) We need something good in PA!

Here is an interesting case.  I don't know if Errol can make the ballot.  He has less than 45 IP this year.  Does that mean he could conceivably win the Valenzuela this year and win it again next year?

I'm thinking he is actually not eligible to be called a rookie until his career IP exceeds 45 IP.


With the updated eligibility requirements, I'm able to pull a query and be pretty sure I've got all the rookies.  Currently, I'm showing 31 rookie pitchers (both leagues) who have at least 45 IP or more in 2019.  I have 34 rookie batters (both leagues) who have at least 90 AB or more in 2019.

Hmmm...  Greg Holt has been an exciting addition to our lineup this fall, but I am considering benching him so that he doesn't get to 90 ABs this year (I'd rather give him a shot at the Robinson next year...).

Holt finishes this year with 88 AB.  That's cutting it close.

Rod Booth wound up pitching 48.1 innings in his callup, so no Valenzuela for him next year. Although, without having looked at this year's rookie class, 5-1, 3.54 in 7 starts might be worth some consideration *this* year.

Teammate Sandman MacGrewar probably has a better shot...  10-4, 2.33 in the pen.
