Changing players

I'm sure this has been answered before elsewhere, but please indulge me if you have input.

Does playing a fielder at his secondary position affect his fielding numbers? For example, in my league, Gary Carter is OF/C with fielding numbers of .981, + arm, +0.68 dWar. If I want to play him primarily at catcher, would he be better at the position if I changed him to C/OF, or does it matter?


Re: Changing players

Playing a person at their secondary Position reduces their Fielding % downwards by 50 points - so if they are a C/OF have a .975 Fielding % as catcher and a .925 Fielding % as an Outfielder.

Their DWar stat remains unchanged
