After the BL season is over is fine for demoting call-ups.
So, to be clear:
By call-up, do you mean only players called up for expanded rosters? Or should this apply to any player with options available?
I've got a small sample size, but so far I've seen no players suffer a demotion penalty when demoted after the regular season (including players who had spent the whole season on the big league roster), but I've seen a couple demotion penalties after rollover. From the limited sample, I'm inclined to think players take it better when the regular season has ended, rather than at the start of the following season/before spring training. I was a bit surprised to read conventional wisdom on the board had it the other way round...
Happy to hear back from MIke and others.
