MLB 60-Day DL

Anybody know when teams can put guys on the 60 day DL? Is it opening day?

I am pretty sure the MLB disabled lists don’t exist until the season starts. Someone can check me on that.

60 day DL starts when the team in question opens camp. A team can’t put someone on the 60 day DL though until the 40 man roster is filled and they have someone to replace the injured person on the 40 man. For reference Greg Bird wasn’t put on the 60 day DL till around May last year.


“Give up another” Homer Bailey is on the 60 day. As Wimble explained, the Reds needed the spot to add somebody.
