  • Expansion Draft, Player Movement, Player Signings

A list I’ve been meaning to get around to is finally updated. I was mainly waiting for the expansion draft to conclude last week and for my vacation to be over as well before I got into this long list of player moves. As some of you already know I try to track these moves to the best of my abilities here during the offseason.

From week-to-week (and soon to be a day-to-day thing) I will post this list with the updated moves that each club has made.

So far a lot of the moves center around the expansion draft, retirements and players that got cut recently. If any move is missing or incorrect please just comment below and I will update it as soon as possible. Big thanks to a couple readers for emailing in a few of these lists over the last couple weeks. I really appreciate the help you guys!!
