Player not eligible who should be??


Player not eligible who should be??

I am in the process of making an Angels team for Fav Teams and I found Kirby Yates played briefly for the '17 Angels before going on to have a good season with the Padres. He is not an option to choose for the '17 Angels even though, at least as I understand it, he should be. Is there a way to get him added to the team?

Re: Player not eligible who should be??

Hmm... I never knew he was with the Angels, but it looks like you are indeed correct...

Pitched 1 inning, giving up 2 Hits, both Homers, as an Angel, He probably wants to forget he pitched for them too!

Re: Player not eligible who should

Hmm, I also would like to get clarification on this. Yates should be eligible, even with only 1.0 IP right?

Re: Re: Player not eligible who should

One would assume... Pretty sure other pitchers have done the same exact thing and still have been eligible

Re: Player not eligible who should

I thought you needed at least 10 IP to use a portion of a Season, so I think he is eligible if you include the time he pitched for San Diego along with his Inning with the LAA but the LAA IP does not stand alone.

But again, I am not sure, you could always multiply his LAA stats by 10 and use him is a Custom League but that is a pretty ugly number to multiply by 10..
