Spring Training Stats
I’ve been getting a flood of emails about spring training statistics showing up for players that haven’t played in the big leagues yet this year.
Kilg.us collects all of its stats for an XML feed that MLB publishes. Every time you request the stats for your team(s), Kilg.us checks to see what the latest stats are and loads them into the system.
Unfortunately, it seems that MLB leaves springs stats listed for all players that appear in the spring but are then sent to the minors (or DL). Until they appear in a big league game, MLB will continue to show springs stats in their feed.
This is just how it works.
If you have a player on your team that is showing spring stats, please move that player to your bench. The player’s individual stats will still show from spring, but this will remove the player’s stats from your team totals.
