Key Transaction Definitions

Release: Player has been released from his contract and is free to sign with another team in the MPBA or elsewhere.

Foreign: Player has been released from team in order to sign with a team in a foreign league.  Other U.S. minor league or semi-pro organizations do not qualify for this designation. The team from which a player leaves has the first right of refusal should the player wish to return to the MPBA during the same season.  A Foreign Release does not count against a team's allotted roster moves.

Refusal to Report (RTR): Player has left the team of his own accord, either for personal reasons or to join another U.S. minor league or semi-pro team.  A player being designated as RTR will not be allowed to return to ANY team in the MPBA for a period of one year from the date of his RTR designation.  An RTR does not count against a team's allotted roster moves.
