-After rosters are reduced to 27 players, there will be a 4 round expansion draft before the supplemental draft
-Teams will not lose players or the rights to players in order to fill the expansion teams

10/26/2020Re: Fernando Vinaehwhy
As michael55 addressed his concerns about the SS eligibility of Fernando Vina publicly, I am also making my response public.

I appreciate your concern. I did take them into consideration before making my decision on how to proceed.

' a) Players can swap their primary and secondary position or select a position they played during that season.'

Fernando Vina's secondary position in 1996 and 1998 through the end of his career is IF. As such swapping his secondary and primary position allows for the option to play any IF position, aside from C. This is within how the rules were meant to be understood.

If any owner did not make a position change request because of their understanding of the rule, I will accept position change requests until the end of the day tomorrow.
