Yeah, that's a text issue that can happen with game generated guys sometimes. Just put a space after his first name and that should fix it. If you ever see a guy with an underscore or percentage sign in his name he's definitely generated.

Thanks, fixed.

If you see these guys, tell me, or even better, tell Markus. They shouldn't be happening anymore.

Also I actually work some at the same hitting facility as Brian Bocock and I believe he retired and is now instructing and coaching with KC this season in the minors

Yoan Lopez only has 2 star potential which seems low considering the Dbacks spent so much to get him.

He might be a superstar but he could also be a bust. Wouldn't be the first highly thought of youngster to sign for a nice amount of money then to turn into a bust and wouldn't be the last.

I think it's pretty accurate though. He was awful in Cuba. Had more walks than K's in every season he played! Didn't even manage to average 4.5 K/9 either!

He's a nothing prospect, really. 2* is way, way too high if anything.

After totally whiffing on the great Cuban players like Abreu, MLB teams are completely overcompensating by signing guys who aren't even decent Serie Nacional players, and massively overpaying them to boot.

And really no one ranked Lopez as a top 10 prospect in the Diamondbacks system either, so while he's a bit of a guy, I also think a 2-star projection is fine.

Yasmany Tomas' contract is incorrect:

His 6th year contains a player option in game rather than in his 5th year. He can opt out after 4 years, but only is able to do after 5 years in the game.

http://www.fangraphs.com/statss.aspx...71&position=3B

2015: 2m
2016: 4m
2017: 6m
2018: 10m
2019: 15.5m (Player Option)
2020: 17m

In game his 2020 season contains the player option.

The game won't accept a contract structured like that. The player option year has to come last.

I remember some random weird things in contracts from OOTP 15, so I'll ask about those here:

Robinson Cano Statistics and History | Baseball-Reference.com

Why does Robinson Cano have a team option in his 9th year in the game? I've never heard of such a thing in his real contract, any reason for that?

----

Jacoby Ellsbury Statistics and History | Baseball-Reference.com

Jacoby Ellsbury's final year of 21m should have a 5m buyout, not $0.

---

Also are vesting options being implemented next year for all the current contracts, or is it too much work? There's some guys with random weird clauses in their deals but receive team options in OOTP instead. Examples:

CC Sabathia's final year can be voided if he gets a shoulder injury, but it's just a team option in the game.

Felix Hernandez's 1m team option in his final year can be exercised if he spends 130 days or games on the DL.

Will we see that fixed for OOTP 17?

--

Oh I see. So is little stuff like that not going to happen like Ellsbury's buyout?

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez has the ratings of a reverse platoon player who hits better against left-handed pitchers but his career stats clearly show he does much better versus right-handed pitching

..........BB%.K%...AVG..OBP..SLG..OPS...ISO..BABIP ..wOBA
vs L---8.4--36.6--.196-.267--.321--.588--.125--.293----.263

Stuff like Sabathia and Felix's contract options with regard to injuries can't be implemented in the game just because of how contracts work.

70 (on the 20-80 scale) would be too high, imo. You have to leave room at the top of the scale. He's a top 10 defender of his position but not top 5. 80 should really be reserved for special defenders. 70 is the really elite guys. 65 is a huge compliment. It's an outstanding rating.

From MLBTR:

Quote:
Kiley McDaniel of Fangraphs breaks down the spread of opinions on Lopez (Twitter links), with some comparing him to mid-first-round arms from last year’s draft and others believing he’s destined to be a reliever.
2 stars, being a major league average starting pitcher, would be fine for now, I think.

"Why does Robinson Cano have a team option in his 9th year in the game? I've never heard of such a thing in his real contract, any reason for that?"

Can I get an answer to this, I'm actually very curious. Did I miss that he had a vesting option or something? I thought he had 10 years fully.

This was brought up in the Beta. Needs to be fixed but there are only a few people who could fix it(Markus, Andreas and maybe Matt).
