This league was disbanded because it was not full prior to the scheduled draft time.
When Major League Baseball announces the changes to their schedule, we will adjust your fantasy league to match. Fantasy drafts will continue.
Initial league waivers are being delayed because the extended time off will allow some injured players to start the season that would not have otherwise. Since teams are not releasing this information or any general player availability information, we have postponed the first waiver wire for your league for a few weeks. All leagues that draft before the Sunday prior to Opening Day will have a preseason waiver wire. If you have any questions please contact us at email@example.com

Correcting a previous report, Seattle Mariners OF Carlos Gonzalez has not been released by the Mariners.
The Chicago Cubs are in the process of cutting minor league players, and that includes second baseman Carlos Asuaje and relief pitcher Brock Stewart. Asuaje was last in the big leagues with the Padres in 2018 and hit .196 in 79 games. Stewart was taken in the Rule 5 draft and owns a career 6.05 ERA in four seasons between the Dodgers and Blue Jays.
Seattle Mariners OF Carlos Gonzalez was released Thursday, May 28.
Seattle Mariners outfielder Carlos Gonzalez is one of the players the Mariners are releasing among their minor league cuts. Gonzalez signed a minor league deal with the M's with an invite to spring training, where he hit .237 before the coronavirus shutdown in early March. The 34-year-old Venezuelan was a three-time All-Star with the Rockies but struggled mightily in 2019 in his first season away from Coors Field, hitting a combined .200/.289/.283 with three home runs and 10 RBI in 45 games (166 plate appearances) with the Indians and Cubs. Car-Go could resurface elsewhere, but he's unlikely to make much of an impact on a major league squad, especially in a shortened 2020 season.
Texas Rangers relief pitcher Cody Allen (forearm), who had some minor arm issues this spring before baseball was shut down due to COVID-19, has been feeling good and has been throwing at Globe Life Field during the pandemic. It's unknown if he'll be ready to go if the MLB season kicks off in July, but the right-handed reliever's injury didn't sound too serious to begin with. Jose Leclerc should be the team's primary closer, with Rafael Montero also being a candidate for ninth-inning duties. Allen has plenty of closing experience with 153 career saves, but he posted a 6.26 ERA in 25 games with the Angels last year before being released. He's just hoping to win a bullpen job whenever the season starts, so Allen is off the fantasy radar currently.
Oakland Athletics SP Daniel Mengden (elbow) said he is about 95 percent of the way back after undergoing three surgeries this offseason. Mengden said he's throwing all his pitches in bullpen sessions.
Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Daniel Mengden(elbow) said he expects to be ready for the start of the season whenever MLB is ready to resume play. Mengden had two surgeries on his digestive system this offseason and arthroscopic surgery on his pitching elbow in February. The right-hander would've missed the first few months of the season anyway, but he has been throwing in the bullpen and feels he is on track to start the season with the team. Despite being healthy, Mengden is an unappealing fantasy option. His 5.73 xFIP was worse than every qualified pitcher last season and he won't rack up strikeouts, either, thanks to a low 16.2 percent strikeout rate.
Free-agent OF Denard Span (Mariners) said he received a few minor league contract offers during the offseason but said he may be done with playing professional baseball.
Tampa Bay Rays starting pitchers Blake Snell (elbow) and Brendan McKay (shoulder) are among the two-thirds of the team's pitchers that haven't been throwing off a mound during the coronavirus shutdown. Pitching coach Kyle Snyder hasn't seen video of either pitcher, but he expects them to be ready to go with "zero limitations" whenever the 2020 season begins. Both Snell and McKay suffered small setbacks in spring training, but they've both had ample time to heal during the shutdown. Snell has become a risky low-end fantasy ace because of his arm issues and the fact that he's considered sitting out in 2020 if he feels it's not worth the health risk. McKay, the team's No. 2 prospect, is a two-way player with more value in his left arm at the moment. There's plenty of upside as a late-round gamble in deep mixed leagues, but a shortened season makes it less likely that he'll have a huge fantasy impact.
Tampa Bay Rays LHP/1B Brendan McKay (shoulder) has not thrown off a mound recently, after having experienced shoulder stiffness during spring training. However, pitching coach Kyle Snyder said he expects McKay to be ready to go with 'zero limitations' once workouts resume, even though he has not seen video of him during the shutdown.
Tampa Bay Rays LHP Blake Snell (elbow) has not thrown off a mound recently, after having experienced discomfort in his pitching elbow during spring training. However, pitching coach Kyle Snyder said he expects Snell to be ready to go with 'zero limitations' once workouts resume, even though he has not seen video of him during the shutdown.
New York Yankees LHP James Paxton (back) said he feels that he is back to full strength and added that his back 'is a non-issue.' He estimated that he has thrown at least a dozen bullpen sessions and has demonstrated increased velocity and improved command recently.
Free-agent RHP Bartolo Colon said he would like to pitch one more season at the MLB level, preferably with the New York Mets.
New York Yankees starting pitcher James Paxton has altered his fastball grip to produce a higher spin rate with the pitch. Paxton tends to throw his fastball up in the zone, and the pitch is complemented by a solid curveball. As a result, if Paxton successfully adds spin to his fastball then hes likely to see his strikeout rate rise from its already high 29.4% mark from last season. The delayed season should allow Paxton plenty of time to get comfortable with his new grip, so fantasy owners should expect the 31-year-old to post a strikeout rate above 31% in 2020.
Free-agent second baseman Scooter Gennett said that he's fine with sitting out the 2020 season. Gennett hasn't gotten what he considers a fair offer for his services on the open market this year. The 30-year-old made the All-Star team two years ago with the Cincinnati Reds when he hit .310 (second in the league) with 23 home runs and 93 RBI. It all went downhill when he injured his groin in spring training last year, sidelining him for three months. Gennett returned too early from his injury and hit just .217 in 21 games before being traded to the Giants. He was released by San Francisco after only 21 games. He was expecting offers in the $5 million range this offseason, but the best he got was for $1.5 million and $500,000 in incentives. Unless Gennett unexpectedly receives a better offer with guaranteed money, it sounds like he's unlikely to return to the big leagues.
New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (calf) has been taking batting practice as he continues to recover from a calf strain suffered early in spring training. The Yankees have been optimistic that Stanton would be healthy for the start of the season, and taking BP is a strong sign in that direction. Stanton is sometimes unfairly labeled as injury-prone, but hes played in at least 150 games in two of the past three seasons and should be expected to have a full workload in 2020.
New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge (rib) has yet to resume swinging, indicating that he still hasnt had an additional CT scan. Judge is scheduled to undergo a CT scan sometime soon, but he hasnt swung pain-free since the beginning of spring training and is unlikely to start swinging before getting a clean scan. Until Judge can comfortably swing, fantasy owners should expect the outfielder to miss significant time. Judge may miss the entire season if he requires surgery, so fantasy owners should be cautious drafting him in early rounds.
New York Yankees OF Aaron Judge (rib) has not starting swinging a bat at this point, but hitting coach Marcus Thames said Judge will be ready when he is cleared by the doctors.
Tampa Bay Rays pitching prospect Brent Honeywell (elbow) underwent a decompression procedure on his right ulnar nerve on Wednesday in Los Angeles. The surgery was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache. The Rays are saying that scar tissue was removed from the area of the nerve. Honeywell is scheduled to begin strength and mobility exercises on Monday in Port Charlotte, Florida. The right-hander remains one of the team's top pitching prospects (No. 6 per MLB Pipeline), but he just can't shake his elbow issues. The 25-year-old missed the entire 2018 season after having Tommy John surgery and missed all of last year due to a fractured elbow. This latest surgery doesn't sound too serious, but it's a setback nevertheless. Honeywell might be able to contribute at some point in 2020 if there is a season, but we'd expect the Rays to be even more cautious in an abbreviated season.
Pittsburgh Pirates INF Kevin Kramer (hip) recently underwent right hip surgery and is expected to be sidelined for four to six months.
