Can position eligibility change during the season in baseball?

Yes:

Eligibility(ies) will not be taken away until we reset them in 2014 for the 2013 season. What you see now will NOT go away.

Any player who is not eligible at a position -- but expected to play there and start there in 2013 -- will have to gain the eligibility this year in 2013 by starting 7 GAMES there THIS season. Players will not move over until this happens -- they must earn it, even if they are scheduled to start there, or are starting there in spring training, it must be earned.

Pitchers must make 3 starts or appear in 8 RP outings to earn eligibility there (so if you're counting on Chapman as a SP, he will move to a P after 3 starts).

Awesome, thanks for the detail.
