Scoring:Teams will compete for accumulative stats in five offensive and five pitching categories, with each category weighted equally. Categories include:
• Batting Average
• Home Runs
• Stolen Bases
• Earned Run Average
• WHIP Ratio (Walks plus Hits divided by Innings Pitched)
The team at the end of the year with the most Rotisserie-ranking points based on cumulative statistics for the season in each league wins the league title. Teams also will have their cumulative stats positioned in an overall Rotisserie-style ranking (5x5 with each category weighted equally among all teams in Scout Fantasy Baseball Leagues) with the top finisher in each league winning the 1st place prize.
Please note: There is a 1000 innings pitched minimum requirement for all leagues, but no minimum requirement for the number of starting pitchers or relief pitchers on each roster. Should any team not reach the required limit of 1000 innings pitched by the end of the season, the rankings will be altered to show that team getting 1 point in both ERA and WHIP. No other teams will switch positions in the standings, but the team that didn't reach the minimum IP will automatically earn 1 point in ERA and WHIP. All players must have played 20 games in 2015 or 10 games during the 2016 season to qualify at a certain position. Minor-leaguers who did not play 20 games at any position in 2015 but who still played at least one game in the majors last year, will qualify at the position they played the most at in the majors in 2015. If a player returns from retirement or rehab after missing the previous year, his position eligibility will be based on his previous year's eligibility.

Position EligibilityScoutFantasy will use the following position eligibility rules in 2016:
a) Players who played at least 20 games at any position in 2015 will qualify at that position for the entire 2016 season. Players who play 10 games at a new position in 2016 will be eligible at that position after they have played there for the 10th time during the 2016 MLB regular season. Any player who missed all of the previous season to injury or retirement will qualify at the position he last was eligible for in the majors.
b) If a player did not appear in 20 games at any position, he qualifies at the one position he played most frequently the prior season in the majors. Designated Hitter is considered a position for these purposes (pinch-hitting is not). A player who only qualifies as a DH may only be assigned to the UT position. If a player's most games played at a position is less than 20 and tied among more than one position, the commissioner will assign eligibility at one position only.
c) Those players who only pinch-hit in the majors in 2015 will be position eligible according to their minor-league games played status in 2015. They would qualify at the position they played the most games in the minors.
d) Players who played all of 2015 in the minor leagues will be awarded position eligibility for the 2016 season based on the most games played at all levels in the minors. Scout Fantasy will determine that one eligible position before Draft Day and that will determine that player's status for 2016 once he is called up to the majors. Those players who only pinch-hit or DH in the minors will only be UT-eligible.
e) The commissioner will rule on player eligibility prior to the draft as he deems necessary. Those eligibility lists are final and will be available to all owners prior to Draft Day.
Please note: If you don't see a player's name in the list, select a place holder name and announce to everyone in the chat who you are drafting.
