One of the game's sluggers gets locked up for the next few years, the Cubs re-up Hendry, and the Yankees wander into the free talent market again.

The BP Guide to Transaction Rules

Thomas Gorman

Complicated and confusing, the option rules govern the movement of 40-man roster players to and from the minor leagues.

To be placed on the 40-man roster, a player needs to be given a major-league contract. When teams want to assign those contracts to a minor-league club (that is, when teams want one of their 40-man players to play for an affiliated minor-league franchise) they give the player an "optional assignment" down to the minor-league team (as opposed to an "outright assignment," which we'll leave for another day). An option is not used only when a player is shifted off the 25-man roster and down to the minors. An option is also expended when a player on the 40-man is assigned to a minor-league roster. For example, a player with a 40-man contract who spends his entire season in the minor leagues does use an option even though he never made it to the 25-man active roster of the major-league squad.

The optional assignment language signifies that the team has reserved a "right of recall" and can recall the player to the active list of their major league roster. Optional assignments are not subject to waiver approval from the other 29 clubs, and they give a team a great deal of freedom to move players onto and off of their major-league active rosters.

While some teams gear up for the stretch run with oodles of pinch hitters and LOOGYs, some teams fill needs with useful players. Chris has the details.

Chris Kahrl closes out the offseason with a wrap-up of the Wests, plus a quick rundown of the rest of baseball.

Jonah Keri takes a closer look at roster construction, in search of a better way. Bobby Cox, Earl Weaver, Casey Stengel and George Stallings lend a hand.

Rarely does a game go by in which I don't see a player thrust into a situation in which he's overwhelmingly likely to fail. We're told that the talent pool is shallower than it used to be, that players don't have the same breadth of skills they used to have. Some say that for every strong major league player, there are three more on the roster who barely belong there, and there's not a thing we can do about it.

The Red Sox take a gamble on Pedro Astacio. Andy Pettitte comes off the DL again for the Astros, while Wade Miller replaces him. The Indians bullpen will give erstwhile closer Bobby Howry a chance. And the Padres engage in some micromanagement that Chris finds absolutely maddening. All this amd much more news from around the league in your Friday edition of Transaction Analysis.

There are positives to the Garret Anderson deal after all. The Tigers recall Uggy Urbina in their quest for 70 wins. The Royals lose Angel Berroa to migraines. The Expos re-sign Livan Hernandez to a three-year deal. And the A's finally lose Chad Harville, but pick up Kirk Saarloos to replace him. All this and much more news from around the league in your Tuesday edition of Transaction Analysis.
