Dreckman to Disabled List - Replacement Draft

Umpire Bruce Dreckman is on the Disabled List to start the season, joining veteran Tim Welke whose own retirement will take effect at the conclusion of the 2016 season. This is the latest in a series of DL stints for Dreckman (1), who similarly missed the entire 2012 and 2014 seasons, and approximately one month of 2015, due to medical leave.

Dreckman is a member of Tom Hallion's crew, which includes Phil Cuzzi and Dan Bellino. His vacancy will be covered by a designated AAA call-up umpire.

UEFL participants who drafted Bruce Dreckman are eligible to select an emergency substitute pursuant to the Qualified Alteration of Drafted Umpires procedure (UEFL Rule 1-5-a), and have been notified.
