Hardship Draft

Divergent League doesn’t stop at the Player Draft, we also do a second pick for the bottom 20% of teams in the league by win % at the All-Star Break. This year the 3 Hardship Draft teams are:

  • Chicago White Sox
  • Chicago Cubs
  • Montreal Expos

The managers of these teams will be able to pick any player from any non-player controller team to add to their roster, starting immediately after the All-Star Game. It’s going to be an interesting last half of the season!
