re: 2020 Diamond Sports Megathread: Sports are cancelled Edition
Looks like ball players in spring sports may get an extra year.

The NCAA’s Council Coordination Committee has agreed to grant relief for the use of a season of competition for student-athletes who have participated in spring sports.

Committee will also discuss issues for winter sport student-athletes.

So, baseball players, as expected, are getting a year of eligibility back. The most likely scenario here is getting rid of the 27 players on scholarship cap (for one year) and getting rid of the 25% minimum rule (for one year). We’ll see what the @NCAA decides.


I’m not sure what the 25% rule is.

I think then min you can get is 25% of a scholarship. That's how the divide the 11 per team.

It means at most 27 players on roster must get at least a 25% scholarship. 28 & up are walk ons. Teams can have as many as 35 on roster.

Source tells @TheAthleticCFB that the NCAA Division I Council has approved blanket waiver for all spring-sport athletes to get an extra year of eligibility. Schools will be able to offer less (or zero) aid or match what they provided this year. Up to each school for each athlete.

In baseball and most spring sports there are more roster spots than scholarships. In baseball particularly, there are 11.7 scholarships split amongst 27 guys with 35 total on the team. Each player on scholarship must be given a minimum of 25% of a full scholarship.

From what I have seen it is looking like senior can come back next year on their same scholarship level as this year without it costing the school that level of aid in their 27/11.7 limit.

Seniors who would I think we could see back next year if the 5 round draft get implemented:
Rankin Woley
Matt Scheffler
Conor Davis

Juniors and draft eligible sophomores who I think we could see back next year with a 5 round draft:
Garrett Farquhar
Jack Owen
Steven Williams
JS Shenker
Cody Greenhill
Bailey Horn
Kason Howell
Judd Ward

Really the only guy I see going to the 5 round draft is Tanner.

MLB is talking like they may not have a draft this year.

I just don't see the agents letting that happen. I think a condensed 5-10 round draft gets done.

Because of the condensed draft do we have any HS signees that were planning on going pro that will be forced to stick with Auburn?

Draft shortened to 5 rounds:
quote:

Sources: MLB shortens 2020 draft from 40 rounds to 5

Major League Baseball will cut its 2020 draft to five rounds, as owners looking to save costs in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic pushed for fewer rounds over the objection of front-office officials, sources told ESPN.

The plan, which has been relayed to scouting directors, will allow teams to sign an unlimited number of undrafted players for $20,000. The draft is expected to begin June 10.

An agreement between MLB and the MLB Players Association in March allowed the league to reduce the draft from its typical 40 rounds to as few as five. The agreement allows teams to delay signing bonuses, with a maximum of $100,000 to be paid within 30 days of a player signing, 50% of the remainder due July 1, 2021, and the leftover due July 1, 2022.

The fallout from the decision could have a significant effect on professional and amateur baseball. Owners have long sought a shorter draft in spite of general managers and player-development personnel arguing that the domestic draft offers the greatest amount of surplus value compared to cost.

The cutting of the draft coincides with the proposed elimination of a quarter of minor league teams, a measure that has drawn significant criticism.

Those critics doubled down following the news that the draft would be only five rounds. Eliminating the sixth through 10th rounds will save teams a combined $29,578,100 in slot value -- less than $1 million per team, and less than $500,000 in actual cash with the new signing-bonus rules.

The news serves as a lead-in to the discussions between the league and MLBPA next week on a return-to-play proposal MLB is expected to deliver Tuesday. The previous formal offer between the sides concerned the draft in late April, when MLB offered a 10-round draft -- with the slot values from the sixth through 10th rounds half the size of the agreed-upon amount and the number of $20,000 signings limited to five. The union rejected the proposal, precipitating the league settling on five rounds.

Though the college baseball world had anticipated five rounds, it will scramble to figure out how to balance its limited scholarships, a potential influx of freshmen and the desires of draft-eligible juniors -- and seniors, after the NCAA restored eligibility to spring athletes upon canceling the 2020 season -- to forgo $20,000 bonuses and return to school.

The 2020 minor league season could be in jeopardy as well, with multiple farm directors saying they believe prospects would spend their seasons at teams' complexes in Arizona and Florida instead of minor league affiliates, who would lose money running games without fans.

In addition to shortening the draft, the March agreement allows MLB to delay the opening of the international signing period from July 2 to as late as Jan. 15. The league has yet to inform teams when the signing period will begin.

MLB last shortened the draft in 2012, when it went from 50 rounds to 40.

Comp round but before 2, so I’ll go ahead and call it another 1st rounder

Two recent first round pitchers. Plus Holland, Keegan, and Anfernee in recent years in high rounds. Really cool

Saw that. Focusing more on the pitching angle.

Recent draft success plus Tim Hudson has to be a real sell for high school guys wanting to improve their draft stock

Do you know who we stand to keep in our current recruiting class if they’re not drafted? Think any will go another route?

Anyone that gets drafted is gone this year. Of our signees, Werner Blakely is about it that I could see. This draft should be college heavy.

I have seen Steven Williams in some mocks.

I would think you would have to be a cant miss HS player to be drafted this year with virtually no SR season.
