Minimum relief innings for draft


Minimum relief innings for draft

We are going to draft from 1994,s strike-shortened season. what are the minimum innings required to draft starters and relievers?

Re: Minimum relief innings for draft

Not sure if I understand the question. Are talking minimum to import or minimum to draft? There shouldn’t be a minimum set automatically for either. I’m starting a ‘94 league and I either doubled stats or multiplied by 1.4 to project a full season.

Re: Re: Minimum relief innings for draf

My understanding is that if a starter or reliever do not have enough innings, they either will not import or cannot be used in their proper roles. It is a big issue with a short season like 1994 because of the strike. Has anyone run into the problem with 2020 database?

Re: Minimum relief innings for draf

I tried to do a 1994 draft only. It won't work. It does not allow you to draft about half of the team because of at bat and innings pitched limits. I don't know what the limits are, but it won't let you import them.

Re: Re: Minimum relief innings for draf

Hi... When you say draft, which feature are you talking about? Actually importing players or drafting them into teams once they are imported?

Re: Minimum relief innings for draf

Found the answer to my question when trying to import:

To qualify, a player needs 125 ABs or 35 IPs.
Starters with less than 85 IP must be RP.

Is there any way around this limits.

We are drafting our 1994 team from franchise mode. You choose the franchise, then set all years to 1994, to assure it is a 1994 lineup. But it won't work. Not enough eligible players because of the strike.

Re: Re: Minimum relief innings for draf

You can't work around those limits in the Fav Teams draft style. I guess you could have people build what they can, but then you'd have to manually import players that don't meet the minimums.

I'm curious, if this is a 94-only league, why do you need to draft at all? Could you just import the entire team for each team as commissioner?

Re: Minimum relief innings for draft

When I did that in my league following those limits, some teams imported as few as 17 players. I had to make filler players to get the rosters to 25.

Re: Re: Minimum relief innings for draf

We resolved it by having each GM draft a franchise and limit the years to 1994 and 1995 only. The main roster had to be 1994. The filler and missing spots for pitchers could come from 1995. That gave us full rosters.

All you have to do is go to your commish settings and change the min inn/ab req for import
