Guys like Colby Lewis we know will be out till at least May and yet they are not yet listed as being on DL.... and therefore, we cannot add them to our leagues DL since it is limited to DL and does not include OUT. When will FF change their designation to DL?
Flea will not list a player as on the DL until his MLB team officially places them there. I do not believe the Rangers have made that move on Lewis yet. He is listed as Out on Flea, which is correct until he officially goes on the DL.
When the MLB team does. We can't move them there until then, even if you know they're hurt for an extended period of time. Sometimes in Spring Training teams wait quite a while. You can scroll over the injury icon and it will tell you estimated time of being out -- though you can DL them because their MLB team has not.
