For a bet to have action on a player prop, that player must throw at least one pitch (if pitcher) or record at least one plate appearance (if position player). This rule applies for both pre-live and live bets. Player markets and other statistically dependent markets are settled when the relevant information becomes available on the league’s official website or by a reputable statistical provider. Exceptions are made for shortened games in which case settlement will occur when the game has been declared official.
