Fictional player generated in historical league

Not a database error as such because he's not in there, but I've just noticed a fake player called Jason Schroering was drafted out of high school in 1877. Was curious as to who he was - because he led the league in SB - and couldn't find any mention of him online, so I checked the database and isn't in there either.

I know if you turn the draft off you get a 'disable automatic creation of free agents' but this seems like a random inclusion. Looked into the full player list in 1884 and there's a bunch of other players (Puerto Ricans, Panamanians and Mexicans) who haven't got real life stats/aren't in the minors database but have been generated for drafts.

Unless I'm unbelievably dense and missing a setting somewhere this feels like a problem for pure historical players.

I also see this bug.

The game creates fictional players in historical leagues even when it is told not to and there is no reason to do so.

Have just gone draft by draft and they start appearing in 1876 (at least the non-US players do).

Update: It seems to happen some years and not others. For a while I was running with the theory that it would create as many players as required to fill the amount of rounds you had in your league rules (rather than just closing the draft when all the historical players were exhausted) but having played with various setups 1876 - 1885 I can see that some years it only drafts the historical players, while some it generates a bunch of randoms and there doesn't seem to be an obvious pattern of why. Have tried auto-playing past the draft and stopping for it but that doesn't seem to make much difference.

My hunch is that the game fails to properly auto-change the number of draft rounds some years (for instance in 1884 I set it at 30, but by draft day is was back to 11 which meant no extra players were required) which is what causes it to look for unwanted extra players to fill the numbers.

From my observations over a couple of restarts it seems to go back in 1876 and come good by about 1883. For example by 1885 the unusual international players that had been generated were from:

Cuba - 1876 x1
Dominican Republic - 1877 x1
Netherlands - 1877 x1
Puerto Rico - 1876 x3, 1880 x2

I have got bad results in 1871 and 1901 in tests. That is 2 for 2. I have not tried other years.
