    Hi Robert,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Jordan Montgomery is listed as a pitcher (P) in our fantasy game. If your league does not roster this position, then he will have to earn either the SP or RP eligibility by making 3 starts to be a starter, or 5 relief appearances to qualify as a reliever to be present in the player pool in your league.

    Thanks,

    Product Support

  2. Why does Jordan Montgomery only have a "P" desi

    In the last three years he has appeared in 37 mlb games and 2 minor league games, all but one of the minor league game as starter. Injury should not cause him to lose SP eligibility. He does not even show up as an available player in a league that only has SP and RP positions

    Hi Karl,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Players changing positions can affect how you manage your team. Their positions are determined based on info from the MLB roster and past performance. Once the player has gained eligibility, they won’t lose it even if they don’t make additional appearances in the season.

    Determine eligibility or rookie status
    The number of games a player completes determines rookie status or player eligibility.

    Position eligibility – 5 starts or 10 total appearances in a position.
    Pitcher eligibility – 3 starts to be a starter, or 5 relief appearances to qualify as a reliever.
    Rookie status – less than 130 at-bats, 50 pitched innings, or 45 days on the active roster for a Major League club during the 25 player limit.

    Since Montgomery only has the P eligibility, he will have to earn SP/RP in leagues that only roster these positions or add the P roster…

  3. Austin Riley position eligibility

    Make Austin Riley's available positions 3B and OF

    The number of games a player completes determines rookie status or player eligibility.

    Position eligibility – 5 starts or 10 total appearances in a position.

    Use the position eligibility countdown
    The number under each position shows how many games remain until the player is eligible for that position. If an “E” appears in the column, they’re already eligible to play.

    1. Under the “Players” tab, click Position Eligibility.
    2. Type the player’s name into the available field.
    3. Click Search.

  4. Austin Nola's position designation needs to be changed to include catcher. He is the regular catcher for the Seattle Mariners this year.

    Catcher needs to be added to Austin Nola's position designation. He is the regular catcher for the Seattle Mariners this year. Catcher was his primary position in the minor leagues. He caught several games for the Mariners last year as well as 55 games for the AAA Tacoma Rainiers.

    Hi William,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Miguel Castro was traded to the NY Mets and is now in the NL.

    If your league uses the National League (NL) or American League (AL) only setting then any NL or AL player traded to the opposite group will be removed from the affected player pool and added (via waivers) to the new one. The traded player’s stats will show on your team page until he’s been removed. These stats won’t count towards scoring and are cleared in our nightly update.

    Thanks,

    Hi Craig,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    In order for a player to get a Covid-19 designation and be eligible for the IL roster spot, the player has to be identified as testing positive by the team and/or player and the team has to make an accompanying move to place the player on the Covid IL. Once this is done, our data provider will confirm and update the status which will then update in our game.

    Thanks,

  11. Player Position Eligibility - Short Season

    In this short season, it is not ideal for starting pitchers with reliever only status (i.e. Jesus Lazardo, AJ Puk, Josh James) to have to pitch 3 games before receiving starter status. My league has 5 SP and 2 RP spots with no P spots. Therefore, we cannot wait multiple weeks for these players to receive eligibility. How can we fix this issue?

    Hi Graeme,

    Thanks you for your feedback.

    Position eligibility cannot be changed in a league so managers will have to wait until that player earns a certain eligibility or add additional P roster positions.

    Thanks,

  12. Stop making Ohtani or any 2 way player 2 different players

    Ohtani is a single player with both SP and UTIL eligibility. He can only be used as a hitter or pitcher each day (so you can still manage him on the backend as two players). All you'd have to do is adjust the player record to map it to the 2 different ones on the backend today through a single record on the front end and depending on the combination of his combined record + his spot on the lineup page, the logic knows which backend record to retrieve for scoring

    Hello Mike,

    Thank you for the feedback.

    Ohtani and other two way players will remain separate players in Yahoo Fantasy. Our product and engineering teams reviewed making these players into 1 player but decided to keeper batter and pitcher versions separate. This has allowed us to focus on delivering new features and enhancements such as the image upload in the chat among other areas.

    We will continue to monitor two way players for the future.

  14. NA Eligibilty

    Several prospects, such as Christian Pache and Sixto Sanchez were reassigned to Minor League camp prior to the shut down, yet they have not gained NA eligibility. Please update these players, as free agent targets are disappearing while their owners wait.

  15. Add Cristian Pache, who was optioned 5 days ago, to NA

    Hello Chris,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Player designations are handled by our data provider. Once they update the player’s designation, it will then update in our system.

    It is likely that NA designations for players will not be updated by our data provider until the MLB season actually begins but we are working with our data provider to get confirmation.

    Thanks,

  16. Allow DH + IF spot

    The only way to bring in DH only options (UTIL) is to have a UTIL spot, but this allows teams to play any hitter and most play OFer since that is the deepest. We want flexibility to assign the DH to other positions (i.e. DH + IF). Typically, the DH is most likely a 1B by most standards so it makes the sense to combine with the IF.

  18. Kevin Cron should be non active "NA" since all-star break ended

    Hello,
    Kevin Cron (ARZ) for some reason does not have a N/A next to his name (as of 7/25 8:30pm EST) it's preventing me from making a roster move. Was wondering why, he is still in minors. Thanks and Yahoo is doing a great job I may add.

  19. Baseball prospects

    Hello, MLB just updated their top 100 prospects which included players from this past June 2019 draft. Wondering if the speed of adding players can been done soon. There have been a few players we are looking to add to our rosters that are not available. Maintaining an active roster allows for more real time fantasy team management for dynasty leagues.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We typically add new prospects at the end of the season. The exception would be if the player is playing in the MLB. In that case they would be subject to your league settings for when new players become available.

  20. Nick Senzel OF

    Nick Senzel should have OF eligibility since he has only played OF in the majors.
