Little help needed, re: service time

In the first year of my new dynasty, there was a rule change that absolutely screwed me royally; service time required for arbitration was lowered to 2 years from 3, here is my question:

If a player has 1 year and 8 days of ML service time, what date do I have to keep him in the minors to make sure he doesn't achieve 2 years in that season?

It would be 11 days after opening day, right?

Season length is what, 184 days or so? Service time requires 172 days for one year.

So since he already has 8 days of that 2nd year, he can only accumulate another 163 days to stay under two full seasons.

184 - 163 = 21 days

(replace 184 with however long your season actually is)

I think nine days off the ML roster would prevent him from reaching 366 days (two years of service time).

But he'll probably still reach arbitration, as a "Super 2" (or a "Super 1" now, really).

I had the mound lowered in my league. I was worried about a more drastic effect than it actually had.
