I have an interesting situation for your pro owners, maybe you can give me some good advice.
I just made a move for this guy;
The previous owner has already signed him to a 4-year deal. My gut wants to option him to AAA for a good chunk of this season to keep him under 6 ML service years played by the time this contract expires. I really don't want to lose him to Free Agency when his contract is up.
This season I still consider myself rebuilding as I did not sign any Type-A's because I didn't want to lose my 20th pick. I have 4 rental starters I signed to 1-year deals in my rotation and I will not be winning the WS. I would like however to try and compete next season in S27. I can afford to demote Dwight for awhile. I'm just worried about demotion hits. If I option a player is there danger of demotion? Also is my math correct that If I option him, I can keep him under control in season 30?
I need some help!
