The velocity value alone won't really affect a guy's performance in OOTP, but we still want to get them right. Often when the velo we have in OOTP is too low, it also means we've underrated the pitcher's Stuff, and it's helpful if we know about that.

I think these are the only things to bear in mind when reporting possible velocity issues here:

A pitcher's velo in OOTP is his "sitting" velocity, so when a guy averages, say, 94 mph, his velo in OOTP should be 93-95. If a guy "touches 97" in a scouting report, he usually won't get a 95-97 mph velo in-game, because he's probably a 93-95 mph guy in that case.

When a guy who is normally used as an SP is used in relief in real life, his velo is usually going to tick up at least a couple of mph, often more, so we'd usually account for that when setting velo for that kind of pitcher in-game. So if an SP prospect got a late season callup last year, and was used out of the bullpen and averaged 96 mph on his fastball, we probably won't give him a 95-97mph velo unless a scouting report says that's what he does as an SP too.

For prospects, we probably will have used whatever velo was mentioned in their most recent scouting report (which might be a mph or two off from what you'd see on fangraphs sometimes, one way or the other).

That's probably it. There will definitely be some velo values that are wrong in the set, so please do report any that are off by more than a mph or two. And German Marquez is a prospect who needs a bit of an adjustment overall - should be done by the Friday release!

The Angels RF Kole Calhoun has the correct contract but he is in the last year of the 4 year contract because it has him starting the contract in 2014.

Matt Duffy is expected to start at SS once back from injury. Consider slightly increasing SS experience.

Consider improving Nick Franklin RF experience slightly/slated to be potential backup at 2b, 1b, RF.

Consider RF experience for OF Mallex Smith (expected to be backup in LF and CF, but will probably get some time in RF at some point due to speed/defense)

Remove CF rating from Rickie Weeks and add experience at 1b - he's expected to possibly be a RH option at 1b. Also very poor defender in OF - consider lowering RF/LF experience and/or range.

I'm just bumping this up so I don't forget it!

Are there any known service time issues with players that were injured for several months last year?

Alex Cobb (TB) is listed for 4 years, 86 days of service time in OOTP - whereas on baseball-reference.com his service time is listed as 5 years, 61 days (5.061).

Also pulled Mike Moustakas (KC) - OOTP service time is 4.146 - baseball-reference.com service time is listed at 5.111

Same for Michael Brantley (CLE)
OOTP service time 5 years, 145 days
baseball-reference.com service time 6 years, 131 days

Thanks again for all your hard work and everything you do!!!

Probably. We're a bit shaky on service time in general. I would not be surprised if there are some issues.

Thanks!

Double check on the guys listed as not in game though. Epifano f.e. is certainly in game, I think you just misspelled his name! Or maybe we did, it's late and I've been working too long!

I'll figure it out later

Found it as Epifano, right! I think the article misspelled it and I went looking for the misspelled name.

good catch.

Played WBC as Australia and found some service time weirdness, possibly related to the players coming out of retirement.

Luke Hughes - 147 years -25137 days service time
James Bersford - 13 years, -2223 days
Trent Oeltjen - 199 years, -34029 days
Mitch Dening - 100 years -17100 days

David Maroul (maroul001dav) has wacky stats for the 2006 Augusta minor league team.

BA - 2.513
OBP - 1.637
Slugging - 4.051
OB+S - 5.689

He is not surprisingly the runaway leader of a number of South Atlantic League leaderboard categories!

You'll probably want to post that in the historical thread!

Small inaccuracy on Cuba WCB (WBC) squad:

Team has selected Jose Antonio Rodriguez from Granma but it should be Jose Ramon Rodriguez from Camaguey (dob 8/18/1992). (Source)

Team also is missing outfielder Yoelkis Cespedes from Granma.

For WBC, under General AI Roster Settings I would recommend having a 3 man rotation as default.

Service Time for all of these players and about 400 others have been fixed. So service time as a whole should look much better in next release.

I believe he has a one year contract, not a three year contract for as the Braves manager.

Most of the GMs in foreign leagues have no scouting stats at all. Does this actually affect anything? It doesn't seem to.

The following are missing their managerial history: Andy Green, Craig Counsell, Dave Roberts, Dusty Baker, Jeff Banister, Jim Riggleman, Kevin Cash, Pat Murphy, Paul Molitor, Pete Mackinan, & Scott Servais.

A.J. Hinch only has 2009 and 2010 credited to him.

Bud Black was fired by the Padres in June 2015, but is credited as going 74-88 instead of 32-33.

Not a big deal what so ever but Tim Tebow is listed as Filipino first and American second. He was born in the Philippines, yes, but nobody would consider him Filipino. I know this has came up before for other players (Edwin Jackson listed as German). Now that there can be dual nationalities maybe it would be wise to switch the order to American first?

Awesome work guys!

When Tanaka opts out of his deal after the 2017 season, he only has 4 years of service time so the game thinks he should be going to arbitration. However, he has a clause that he has to be granted free agency if he opts out, so this is given him a full two extra years of team control that the Yankees do not actually have. Any way to fix this?
