On January 20, 2012 the Atlantic League will host an expansion draft for the Sugar Land Skeeters.
Here's what the Atlantic League's site states about the draft:
" Expansion Drafts: When a new team joins the league, the existing teams must protect a given number of players from their end-of-season roster (active and disabled). The new teams will draft The Atlantic League negotiating rights to a selected number of players from the existing teams' rosters. No team can lose more than two players."
According to sources, each team will have to submit a list of 13 players to be protected. All non-protected players have the possibility of being drafted by the Skeeters.
Even though it lists on the Atlantic League site that a team can't lose more than two players, I'm hearing that teams can only lose one player max. If I hear anything else about this I'll let our readers know.
