Re: A player the Reds might lose in the Rule V draft
I just received a Private Message and was told that EZ is indeed a minor league FA. What is the rule that allowed Elizardo to become a free agent? Clarification wise, I mean. Don't you have to be a 6 year minor leaguer with the same (Major League) team owning your rights for that entire period? I haven't read the MLFA rule in so long, I have forgotten. So with EZ being on the Reds for some time, how does he get to be a free agent?
The answer to this would be extremely appreciated.
