Move player from draft to free agency

Hi all,

Thanks in advance for your help

I'm replaying from the 2015 season and getting ready for the first draft. I noticed that players who were international free agents (Kenta Maeda, Yuli Gurriel, etc) were in the draft pool. I understand why this is, but I'd prefer to make them free agents.

I tried to do it through the player editor. By checking the "Unavailable for draft lists box" and then assigning them to be MLB Free Agents. This didn't work.

Any other way?

make sure which data base to use (historical_database.odb)
click on import historical player.
type in player ID (make certain to copy it exactly - they are case sensitive), type in year, check use minor league data base. check put in draft pool.
should work.if you can see the draft pool, make certain player is there before deleting the one in the FA pool.
good luck.

But, of course, leave out the part about putting him in the draft pool. Instead, delete him from the draft pool.

But, now, another question.

What year?
I'm in the 2015/2016 off season and recalculating ratings each year. It's November 30th 2015.

Do I import the 2015 version of the player or the 2016 version?
When does the league roll over?
The import dialogue prompts me for 2015
But the ratings of several of my players lead me to believe they are the 2016 versions.
