In addition to hitting, pitching, and fieldings ratings - there are a few other factors to consider when scouting players and building your team(s).
EN is the 9th and final rating on the player card. A player's endurance rating influences how long he can go before fatigue begins to impact his performance. During each game, as players play, they slowly lose endurance. Pitchers lose endurance much faster than batters. As a player’s endurance gets low, fatigue begins to set in. Generally, the more endurance, the longer a position player can play without a day off, or the more innings a pitcher can throw before feeling the effects of fatigue. Endurance is recovered whenever a player has a day off, either due to being taken out of the lineup or his team having a day off. Typically, their endurance level will be fully recovered in four to five days. A players' endurance is displayed in the format - Current EN / Maximum EN. When a player is fatigued, their current EN is lower than their maximum EN.
Status summarizes how a player is feeling – Rested, Good, OK, Tired, Fatigued, Exhausted
. Tired and Fatigued players will suffer gradually increasing performance penalties, and Exhausted players cannot play. The maximum a rating can drop due to fatigue is 60% for position players, and 30% for pitchers. The only ratings which are not impacted by fatigue are a pitcher's Specialty (SY) rating and Endurance itself. It is important to note that catchers fatigue faster than players at other positions, and designated hitters fatigue slower than position players. For more information on fatigue, read the Fatigue & Resting Players page.
SeaFat (Season Fatigue)
Season fatigue is the wear and tear a long season can have on a player. Season fatigue impacts playing in two ways:
- Season fatigue lowers a player's maximum fatigue temporarily – resting a player can reduce or eliminate season fatigue to restore their maximum fatigue level.
- Season fatigue increases the amount of time it takes for a player to recover. Players with high season fatigue will take longer to recover than there norm.
For more information on Season Fatigue, read about the Fatigue & Resting Players.
Note – as of June 2022 update, Season Fatigue is a hidden rating that will not be displayed
The Righty/Lefty rating reflects the skill of a batter or pitcher against right-handed and left-handed batters and pitchers. Both the batter's and pitcher's RL ratings are used. In general, it is easier to hit against opposite-handed pitchers. As a result, right-handed batters and pitchers typically have a negative RL rating (worse against righties, better against lefties), and left-handed batters and pitchers typically have positive RL ratings (better against righties, worse against lefties). Note, switch-hitters are always considered as hitting from the opposite side of the plate from which the pitcher throws.
Note – as of June 2022 update, R/L is a hidden rating that will not be displayed. You will know if a batter or pitcher is a righty or a lefty, but you will not see the exact level of impact of their handedness.)
