Develop in Minors or bench?

Does it matter to have a prospect on the bench or bullpen or in the minors to develop them?

Is there a maximum number of players in the minors for the app?

Is there any way to get minor league stats?

Good questions...the best answer that I can come up with is BOTH.

Sorry....I have seen them die on the vine in both places and become stars in both places.

I kinda like it that way....more realistic, imo

Development seems quite random which, as said above, isn't necessarily a bad thing as players don't always pan out.

I'm a few seasons into a Marlins career and Braxton Garrett, probably their best prospect IRL, has never seen the majors for me and is now just a half a star/one star player. He just never developed and never had the arrow next to his name which normally shows you they're ready to be called up.

On the other hand, I drafted a SP 11th in the first season and he's now a very good number two starter in my third season.

I normally wait until they have the arrow next to their name in the minors before I consider bringing them up unless I feel their stats are good enough or I get an injury or something.

The arrow is recommending calling up the player?
