Yes. That potential means he will decline every year until he settles in at around a 65 unfortunately.

Potentials are generally a good indicator of overall. Example: if a player has an 85 potential and an 85 overall, they will generally lose attributes in one area to accommodate improvements in other. 85 overall is pretty much there ceiling. However, there are exceptions. Sometimes guys will perform above expectations and their overall will go up. I have also seen guys overalls go up 1 or 2 without a potential increase, but then the next year the will usually decline back to there potential

It doesn't guarantee that he will decline as potentials are dynamic, meaning they can increase/decrease just like other attributes.

If he has good seasons, you will notice that attributes will hold pretty firm and possibly even increase slightly and could see his potential rating increase from "D" to "C".

Re: Franchise mode post draft question

I haven't played mlbts21 yet until I get my ps5 so I can't say for sure but the developers indicated on the franchise promo video that progression would be more dynamic and potential could change.

I'd start that guy in AA and with his attributes he might tear up AA pitching and progress. See what secondary positions if any he acquires in the off season. If he gets catcher as a secondary position you might have drafted a hidden gem. He has good fielding attributes for a first baseman especially throwing.

That guy looks like a good test case for what they have done with progression this year.

Is it possible, that players acquire secondary positions? I thought that's only possible if you edit them.

Players will not acquire secondary positions unless you edit them.

Re: Franchise mode post draft question

He used poor verbiage. Drafted players don't "acquire"secondary positions but you won't see what they are until the season after you've drafted them. They show as none for the season that you draft them
