Thank you for the quick response. Can you post 1-100 scale, relative to MLB? If not, no worries, and thanks again!

I actually just boosted his hitting ratings a little, they'll be even better next update.

That's awesome. Can you post the ratings here for me when it gets updated? 100 or 200 scale preferably.

I think we need to take his defense down, just based on game experience. The range is there, but he hasn't played an inning in RF since 2014. Also, while he hasn't used it much in games, I've seen 60 and even 70s put on his speed. Not sure how far to take that.

If you're talking about bringing him into MLB in OOTP, your options are

1) Wait until the AI running the Nippon Ham Fighters posts him, likely not until 2021 or so

2) Go into Commissioner mode and make the AI post him after the 2017 season

3) Hell, go into Commissioner mode and do whatever you want. It's a free country.

He has to be 25 to maximize his earnings, so 2 years.

Otani just had a OPS .899 season in my recent league.(position:RF)
And he is just 24 now. I can't image what will happen in the future.

I am sorry. This drives me nuts. Some, especially one team in the OOTP rating system get shafted by what is admittedly one of the most fair thing out there (PECOTA and now ZIPS) -- as my Royals do and several other teams...but none worse than the Royals group of players because they are just the team since 2013 that PECOTA type systems have been abysmally poor at evaluating......

And this dude gets his ratings set here and he's never touched a major league rubber in a game or stood in against the worst major league pitcher.

It's marketing. I get it. But I'm commissioner moding this dude right to the Rocco School of Typewriter Maintenance.

I've never witnessed someone so badly upset about the Royals because of Ohtani.

Maybe you should go look at his BBREF numbers, then come back to us about Ohtani and not another Royals hijacking.

He went 8-12 with a HR and 3 doubles in the opening series this weekend. Have his hitting numbers been updated yet? Can someone post the new ratings with 1-100 scale? I haven't purchased yet and am dying to know what they look like. Thank you!

NPB is AAAA level, so since the worst MLB pitchers are still only average AAA level pitchers who get called up for depth, he has faced the "worst" MLB pitcher so to speak.

That said, he came into the NPB as an 18 yr old who could touch 100 on his fast ball and hit for power. Put the best kid drafted this year and toss him into the International League and he's not going to do very well. His future is likely on the mound, as his bat doesn't get the reps to get much better, and he won't walk enough counter his high K numbers once he moves to MLB imo, but should his pitches continue to develop, this kid is absolutely no joke. He's virtually unhittable already, he's putting up silly numbers. Just translate his numbers to your favourite AAA prospect, realize that he's only 22, and you get the idea.
