handling day-to-day (DTD) status during the regular season
1. DTD rolls should be resolved before the start of every game. In the case of a double-header, the DTD roll prior to game 1 determines availability for both games.
2. Players can only carry DTD status over to one additional series. If a player becomes DTD during his home series it carries over to the home series the following week, and if he becomes DTD during his road series then it carries over to the road series the following week. This means that players can fail no more than 5 consecutive DTD rolls (the last 2 games of the current series + the next 3 games in the following series) before becoming available to play.
3. When reporting injuries in your GRS, if a player remains DTD going into the following series you should record how many DTD rolls he failed (1 or 2) immediately after the injury days. Report time missed due to failed DTD rolls the same as regular injury time, do not record it separately. Make sure to use the “out” type when reporting injuries where DTD is not applicable (i.e. did not require an injury roll). Also, don't forget that players get injury credit for any game they are removed from in addition to any future days they are forced to miss.
4. Don't forget that players returning from injury are not necessarily immediately available to play. If they are active the week they return then they are considered DTD and must make their DTD roll before playing. If a player is reported by the Registrar as being available on home day 2 of week 5, that means that he is considered DTD starting on home day 2 of week 5. Players who are on the inactive roster on the week that they are listed as being able to return from injury will no longer be DTD when they are activated. Using the prior example, if the player who would return as DTD on day 2 of week 5 was inactive for week 5, then he would be immediately available to play upon returning to the active roster in week 6 or later (no DTD roll necessary).
5. Days off are ignored for the purposes of DTD. A player who was DTD prior to an off-day is still considered DTD after the off-day. Furthermore, off-days do not give the player an adjustment to their durability rating for future DTD rolls. Exception: all players who are DTD will be considered healthy after the All Star break.
6. Players who are DTD can be used to satisfy legal active roster requirements.
Injury reporting examples:
ex1: McCann injured by a foul tip in game 1 and remains DTD after failing two DTD rolls (before g2 and g3)
1 inj MCM ATL McCann 3 2 foul tip g1, failed DTD g2/g3
ex2: Hamilton fouls ball off foot in game 3, is removed from the game and is considered DTD going into the next series
3 inj MCM TEX Hamilton 1 foul off foot g3
ex3: Rivera was removed from g3 because of a blister, play did not require an injury roll so DTD is not applicable
3 out MCM NYA Rivera 1 removed due to blister g3
ex4: Rodriguez spiked and removed in game 1, failed DTD roll in game 2, made DTD roll and played in game 3
1 out MCM TB Rodriguez 2 spiked g1
