Managers may trade draft picks for the next free agent draft only.  As soon as the free agent draft begins, picks for the subsequent draft may be traded.  A manager may trade as many of his draft picks as he wishes, but must have at least six draft picks at all times, two of which must be in the fourth round or earlier.

REYNOLDS MAY BE BACK

Two key outfielders on the 2020 Mitts will be spending the year in the minors: Bryan Reynolds (former 1st round pick) and Joc Pederson.
