WWW Rules:

2.15 Winter Waiver Wire (WWW). During the time period after card values are released and the cut lists are due, the Commissioner shall convene a WWW process. During this process teams may choose to make one or more of their players available for the WWW. Once the list of players on the WWW is published, the teams will take turns selecting a player or passing in Priority Order (as defined in section 4). Each team has as long as 24 hours to select a player or pass (or be deemed to have passed), although it is hoped that the process will move much more quickly than that. A team that passes can select a player for up to 24 hours after the time they passed, at which point their pass becomes permanent. The process shall last for an unlimited number of rounds.

2.16 Winter Waiver Wire Impact on Contract Values. When a player is selected on the WWW, the purchasing owner shall have the player’s contract reduced by 50% (rounded up as always). The contract expiration date shall remain unchanged except that a contract with only one year remaining may be increased by one year (such announcement to be made at the time of the WWW selection). The new team will not have RFA rights. The team that released the player in the WWW process shall make a severance payment to the player equal to half of what the severance payment would have been under the contract had the player been cut (rounded up, but in all cases there will be a savings of at least $1 from the cost to cut the player). Term Cut and Full Cut options will apply as contained elsewhere in the rules.

2.17 Michael Pinieda Rule. A player who has had his contract reduced by 50% by the WWW process is not eligible to be placed on IR status for the upcoming season. He may be placed in the minors at full price but may not receive the 75% salary reimbursement

2.18 Unselected Winter Waiver Wire Players. Any player put up for the WWW that is not selected remains on their current team until the cut date, at which time the owner can cut the player per standard rules or force the player to accept a new salary level equal to the amount described in Rule 2.16. By forcing a 50% pay cut on the player, the team shall lose any Restricted Free Agent rights, and the player’s contract expiration date may not be changed in this process.

2.19 Richard Hidalgo Rule Part 2. No conspiracy. A player who is put on the WWW by one team may not be claimed off the WWW by another team of the same ownership. Further, any player claimed on the WWW that is subsequently cut during the same offseason will cost the new team the cut cost of the ORIGINAL contract.
