  • Alex Reyes called up for the Cardinals on 8/9/16

    Alex Reyes made his MLB debut on 8/9/16, but he is not on the MLB roster after the latest live roster update. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Until he becomes apart of the player's Union they cannot add a player to the game.

          It's a union like you'd find at a factory or for teachers etc. but for baseball players. You can only be in the union once you make it to the major leagues. The union negotiates with major leagues baseball on various issues and in the worst case scenario the players can go on strike like they did in 1994. This is a thing of the past but some players were barred from joining the players union like Brendan Donnelly (known for his time with the Angels) because they participated in Spring Training as replacement players (they ended up not playing games with these replacements). As a result of being banned from the players union Donnelly and others like him were not included in video games as they would have needed to individually work out deals to use their likenesses. On a similar note, Barry Bonds voluntarily did not join the players union and could not be used in games (thus Reggie Stocker). I'm not sure how old you are but you may also remember Michael Jordan not being in basketball games during the 1990s. This was because he similarly didn't join the basketball union and his likeness couldn't be used w/o him signing over the rights with a personal deal.
