In 2031, Demontraveous, then a third baseman, was not a top prospect. Rather than go into the draft, he and his family elected to go to Japan for a couple of years. The decision proved to pay off; with disputes over domestic MLB rookie contracts rising, Demontraveous decision to make the move to Major League Baseball looks to expose the glaring differences between International Free Agents and domestic players.

4/8/2020Question about long relieversJoeC911
So my SP blew up and was pulled in the 4th. I would have imagined that would be a situation for my long relievers, but instead it was managed around 4 of my relievers...the long relieved being put in at the end of the game in the 8th.

Am I missing something? Should I not designate my long relieved?
