The minor league roster rules allow owners to make a choice - activate the player (triggering a $4 salary increase next spring) or keep them on the Farm roster, which limits 2018 inflation to $1. That was done with the intention of allowing owners - particularly those with little or no chance to win their league by the time the minor leaguer is promoted - to play a little franchise strategy with those players. For example, if I owned Devers in either of my AL leagues, I wouldn't activate him because my teams currently sit 10th and 7th in the standings and I'd gain nothing this season from his activation. I'd rather save the $3 (and possibly the player I'd have to waive to add him).

The rules also will require Devers and many other players to - in effect - be activated in every Mocksports league prior to the freeze deadline next spring. Once a minor leaguer appears in a specified number of MLB games, he can't stay on the next season's minor league roster. I didn't look it up, but I think the numbers are 20 games for a hitter and 5 games for a pitcher. I plan to post a list of all owned minor leaguers who will be subject to this mandatory "activation" well in advance of the 2018 freeze deadlines.

I don't agree. If you are out of it why should you be forced to call someone up just because he gets a ml tryout. If he gets less than 120 at bats he is still eligible for the minors.
