eligible to be drafted by the league in the draft.

player earns a "point".
every year that AROD is protected, he accrues a point in the
year's draft. If you keep him this year, he is worth 1 point on next
year's draft day.He will be worth 2 points on the following draft
day...unless he is released back into the pool before then. If a
player is drafted from the pool he is worth "0" the following year. )

open the season on the major league DL and/or is expected to
miss significant time due to a serious injury or surgery.
