Default Wilson Valdez out of options?

Tribune Article on sox roster

Quote:
The Sox have some roster flexibility because infielder Wilson Valdez is the only reserve candidate who is out of minor-league options.
Can anybody verify this? We've had problems with the Trib fact checkers before.

Gonzalez must be getting his "facts" from Phil Rogers again. Wilson Valdez has a grand total of 19 games of major league experience - all in Sept of 2004. Therefore, unless I completely misunderstand the rules, he has all his options left.

Just a miscommunication...apparently Wilson Valdez wanted to make some stew, but he was out of onions.

It depends on when he was added to the Marlins' 40-man roster. The MLB site confirms that he was optioned to the minors in 2003 and 2004.

The Marlins claimed him on waivers from the Expos in March of '02, but I'm not sure if he was added to the 40-man roster at the time. Would they have to add him to the roster to make the waiver claim?

If he was on the 40-man in 2002, he would be out of options.

Maybe I misunderstand how it works, but I thought the only options that count were the ones in years in which you played on the major league roster. Valdez did not play any games on a major league roster until being called up last September.

If a player is on a ML 40-man roster he's either:
1.) active (on the 25-man roster)
2.) on the DL
3.) on optional minor league assignment.

ML playing time doesn't matter, only that he is on the ML 40-man roster but not on the active roster.

I thought the reason we got him from the Marlins was he was out of Options for them... This would then remain true for us.

I always thought that once you're added to the 40 man, your clock starts ticking.
