    Why in the world did my catching prospect, Yuk Wu retire at the age of 24? He was listed as the #10 overall prospect in Cuba.

    He was not ready for the majors last season. I had signed two old men to cover the catching position last season. He was almost guaranteed a spot on our major league roster. His ratings this season look like he is ready to go. But he retired?

    I really don’t get this game.

    you should be able to replace a catcher of that caliber (I think). he looks like a decent enough prospect, but not a front line starter. probably a good #2 back up type.

    but still, that sucks to have that stripped away for no apparent reason.

    I do have a couple of similar catchers I would trade you. similar as in, maybe a little older, and maybe don’t have as good of defense. but very similar!

    Thanks Ben. He definitely was not a star. The problem is that we had practically nothing beside him. I’ve already decided I’m not willing to give up much to fill the spot at this time. We might go with Raimundo Espaillat I might have a look at your players after I try my luck in the free agent market.

    He decided to play basketball. Look under “news involving player”. Surprised if it wasn’t in your news feed. He said his career was stalled in the minors and wanted a career change. A 6-foot 200 pound point-guard? Good luck with that.

    Maybe he wanted to play in the CBL. He’d dominate in the Chinese league…

    Mao’s SP prospect, Javier Hernandez, also decided to retire. He’s a 21 y/o 8.8.7 prospect, who is sure to be missed.

    If it makes you feel any better.

    I had 24 year old 7.7.7 SP Prospect Grant Peddle retire this offseason as well. Makes no sense but it happens.

    Were Hernandez and Peddle both CEIs? They both had longterm injuries before retiring.

    I was going to ask the exact same thing…

    Peddle was, yes. Career ending forearm tightness. Definitely no surgeries that can correct that one. Happens in the bigs all the time…
