RTTS Call Up Frustrations

SDS

I am the absolute best catcher in the Brewers org. 79 OVR switch power hitting catcher and has 80+ in all fielding stats and 52 speed. What in the world am I doing wrong?

First season I spend in AA until August, get called to AAA, get asked to move to first base which I declined, got traded to the Brewers who put me back into AA until September, no spring invite being the best ovr catcher at 76, slumped for a bit but im hitting better now in AAA with a 79 OVR, oh and the two catchers the Brewers have are Cam Gallagher and Cal Raleigh...what gives Milwaukee?!

Wait until early late July, Early August. You should get the call up by then.

That's kinda ridiculous considering the catching this team has, but alright lmao. This game needs better AI Org Management coding.

This is supposed to be a simulation. They do not do it exactly realistically, but this is what would usually happen IRL.

Teams rarely do first call ups at the beginning of the year. IRL first call ups usually happen during the September call ups with the expanded roster. Before most players get called up for good they will often get called up several times after multiple years in the minors. The exceptions are position need or overwhelming talent like Griffey, Trout, Harper, etc. and to stay you have to show talent like Julio Rodriguez did this year or get sent back down like Jared Kelenic.

You are supposed to be a reach at being drafted in the third round. You proved yourself to your first team, but declined to change positions to stay with your team. You were only on the new team for a month before September. You would not be called up after a month. Since you started back at zero when you switched teams and have a sub 80 ovr, an invitation to spring training is not certain.

The team has two MLB caliber catchers. If it was more real, you wouldn't get called up until September with one of the two extra spots. Catchers are often kept back even longer than other position players. Look at Adley Rutchman, who finally got the call up after years of being the top catching prospect in the minors.

It's not perfect and sometimes downright infuriating, but the RTTS AI is better than a lot of others. Including MTO and Franchise. Griffey, Trout, and Harper all got called up mid-season of their second year in the minors as top prospects. Baseball-wise them keeping you where you are is only unrealistic in you wouldn't even be in AAA in your second year.

Bro with your logic I should have gotten the call in September of the first year. This game is far from realistic. If you have no shot of winning the division and have bad catchers at the MLB level then the team would bring up the prospect to get MLB ABs so that when the team is good he is good.
