Is a change from DSL to AZL a promotion?

They are both rookie leagues. If a player has enough time and good performance in the DSL rookie league, is the next step to promote A- or AZL? Is the AZL rookie league a step up in league level competition?

all rookie levels are the same as far as that goes...

the only "different" levels are in teh dropdown box in league structure.. eg there's a winter league level now.

if i am mistken that both are "rookie" levels, use common sense to adjust waht i said.

so, no matter how you label it, or ootp labels it in the templates, there is no difference between A and "High" A in the game. short A does exist as a different tier, however.

OH, when you right click a players -> context menu -> transaction -> it says "Send to" if equivalent level and "Promote" and "Demote" as you would expect.

Promote as they develop.. if not sure what 'should be' in that league, go check an AI roster and click "ask AI to setup minors" before you do. (available actions dropdown on Rosters and Transaction screen) anyway, should be able to see multiple levels and the 'basics' about their ratings at each level. i also have a rough guide posted here

Except that it's not functional and will be taken out of 19.

If you set up a new dynasty, winter leagues are no longer an option.

Winter leagues cosmetically were removed in 18 and replaced mechanically with tournaments.

There is an option to specify "Winter League" in the tournament options in addition to the ability to customize league level and abbreviation. I don't see tournaments disappearing as quickly as they appeared in OOTP 19...

To answer the original question, typically any decent DSL / VSL prospect will be promoted to AZL around 18-19 years old for more enhanced and consistent baseball instruction and playing time.

You would have to go in and add the Arizona Fall League in the tournament section. You do not get to choose which players that go unless you are in control of the Fall League team and some players will reject the invitation to go. Also, the default for the AFL is players that were in AAA-AA, you would have to go in and edit what levels the players come from if you want lower minor leaguers to go.
