English term or phrase: drafted player
This is a contract for baseball players and there are some terms specific to the field that I would like the correct term in Spanish. I know what it means in English but need the Spanish term. Thanks in advance for all your help.

jugador fichado


Explanation:
More context and target country-dialect would be needed.

For Spain, "fichado" would certainly work here.

E.g.,

En 1947, comenzó a jugar en las ligas principales, ***tras ser fichado*** por los Yankees, y se convirtió en un símbolo del deporte al que dedicó toda su vida.

agree  Marcelo González: o mejor, quizá ¿"fichado por primera vez", as players are drafted once, really. Later, they´re traded, or signed... >Haha! And right on cue with a quote from a baseball legend and former Yankee :) >2,800 G-hits por "fichado por los Yanquis" por ejemplo :-
