Melky Cabrera, the New York Yankees centerfielder, strained his hamstring in game 4 and was replaced on the roster by Ramiro Pena. However, Pena never got into a game. Is he entitled to a championship ring? I would assume he is, just for being on the roster, but is this the case?
The team votes on who gets a ring.
I believe you have to have been on the roster at some point during that season.
