Two way player in franchise mode question

I am curious to know how they are going to implement two-way players in franchise mode. I want to know if we are going to be able to create players and use them as two-way players.

Can anyone with the game provide any information on this?

Thank you.

We honestly have no idea as they've never explained it, I feel it's just a wait and see thing as there are maybe 5 players at most who are two-way players and most of those aren't at the MLB level yet

They don’t like to be called “two-way”

The pronoun they prefer is Bi-positional...

Fingers crossed that position players can have secondary position as pitcher for guys like Cronenworth and Walsh.

Re: Two way player in franchise mode question

In one of the streams within a franchise you can play a player minimum 20 games at a position and make them a 2 way player.

Not certain for a player already known as a 2 way player if it will be editable in franchise, but I highly doubt it.

More than likely only in franchise when u play a player at new position for 20 games you will have the option to make him a 2 way player. They never showed or really discussed how it will work.

I would think it's only pitchers playing as a fielder for 20 games that you get prompted to make him a 2 way player.

Re: Two way player in franchise mode question

Well I guess the big question is how the hell would it work for guys like Ohtani. will he show up on the lineup screen as a option to put in ANY day. because last year he would only show up on days that are NOT before the day and after he pitches.. that was the huge issue you had to fool the system and move him around the rotation to make him DH every day it was stupid. and the year before you had to keep sending a guy down and back up again so you didn't burn a bench spot so you could sub him as DH

so we will see if the 3rd year that they finally get it correct

What I did when ohtani was a pitcher start him pitching when it was his start, but on days he was batting you can start him but once game started you could move him to RF etc...you just half to bring in another pitcher.

The pitcher you bring in I dont think gets the start stat cant remember.

One thing I noticed but it was only on M2O that secondary position was under Pitcher.. dunno if it means anything though
