‘PINCH HITTER’ RULE EXAMPLE
Some Derbiers are not understanding how the new ‘Pinch Hitter’ Replacement Rule functions.
Derby Hitters will be credited with home runs hit while they are active on a roster.
However, activity dates are based on the date ranges for the Derby Report ranges (shown above).
‘Pinch Hitter’ activation does not take place immediately on the day it is reported.
Example: You report a player change on August 10. The change does not take effect on August 11.
The activation officially takes place after the current HR Derby date range ends, So in the example of a change reported on April 10 you will have the ‘dropped’ hitter until the end of the current date range which would be Games Played thru August 16. You will be credited with HRs hit by the ‘dropped’ hitter from Opening Day until August 16. The new hitter starts playing for your team on August 17 and you will be credited with HRs hit from that day until the end of the season.
