    Does anyone know if Packy getting optioned back down after the DH the other day counts toward his 5 option limit?

    PLAYER…………..OPTION 1……OPTION 2…..OPTION 3…….OPTION 4……OPTION 5
    Naughton…………May 2……….May 14……May 18?
    DeJong…………..May 10
    Whitley………….May 11
    Robertson………..May 12
    Woodford…………May 15

    I wonder if there is a difference between a normal recall or an injury replacement.

    Good question in a murky area. Here is the full list of moves for Naughton:

    3/25 Optioned out
    4/22 Recalled
    5/2 Optioned out
    5/3 Recalled for Matz bereavement
    5/6 Matz off bereavement, Wainwright onto COVID IL (assumption is that Naughton went from covering for Matz to covering for Waino)
    5/14 Optioned out
    5/17 Recalled 27th man DH
    5/18 Optioned out

    So spring training was Option 1, but that doesn’t count against the five since the new rule started 5/2. Starting 5/2, an option period is 15 days for pitchers, but that option period was interrupted at least twice for Naughton, once for the bereavement replacement and again for the 27th man. Or a third time, depending on how covering for Waino’s COVID is counted (if that is what happened).

    My interpretation is that just one option against the five has been used do far.
