System started wrong pitcher


System started wrong pitcher

Th system started a pitcher (36R) that was not in my rotation.
The pitcher (87R) that should have started wasn't hurt or short on days rest. Any idea why the system would do that? That's a guaranteed loss.

Could you supply a link to the team in question?

Re: Re: System started wrong pitcher

Greg Swindell was made starter over Ben McDonanld.
I've since signed a FA and dropped Swindell.
Here's a link to the box score.

Re: System started wrong pitcher

McDonald had to pitch nearly three innings in the 9-3 game a couple games before and thus probably needed three days rest before he could start. I am guessing he barely pitched enough to require that extra third day. The system doesn't skip a pitcher unless it has to.

Re: Re: System started wrong pitcher

23 pitches was just the limit for him to need that 3rd day of rest. This is what I've found out through observation so far:

Relievers
46+ pitches = 2 days rest
24-45 pitches = 1 day rest

Starters
41+ pitches = 4 days rest
23-38 pitches = 3 days rest
9-22 pitches = 2 days rest
5 pitches = 0 days rest (although for a LR)

Re: Re: System started wrong pitcher

I saw that but he was in my starting rotation before that game.
Any idea why rhe system would have put him in in relief?

Re: System started wrong pitcher

When you run out of healthy relievers, it goes to any available SP.

Re: System started wrong pitcher

Happens often in auto leagues in first few games when all SP are avail. After that the four are always tired so can’t come in, and instead it goes to tired RPs

Re: Re: System started wrong pitcher

Alright, Ben McDonald has been in my rotation for around 3 games now.
The system just used him to close out the last game (see box score).
Why would it do that? He's not even in the bullpen rotation.
I don't want him to miss another start and short day my other 4 pitchers.

Re: System started wrong pitcher

Your Bullpen has been throwing a lot of consecutive days, after like three straight days of use, even a reliever who didn't get Tired or use all his stamina is forced to sit a day, at least that's what it looks like

Re: System started wrong pitcher

Yeah you should probably carry 12 pitchers or get a stronger spot starter for when this happens.

But he didn’t pitch enough to need any rest so you’re okay this time.
