Can SPs be used as relievers?


Can SPs be used as relievers?

Didn't see this question already posed, apologies if it has. It's the first time to play this game for our league, and we set it to have 12 active pitchers. I drafted 8 Starting Pitchers and 4 Relievers. Once I filled my rotation, long relief, and 4 bullpen roles, I have 2 extra starting pitchers. Don't see where I can add them to relief roles. Is there a way or are only RPs used in relief? Thanks for the help.

Re: Can SPs be used as relievers?

If they are on your active Roster they can and will be used in Relief but only once all the actual RP's are out of stamina, or have been used if you allow L/R and R/L match up changes.

So if the SP you have as a Long guy gets used and needs to rest, you could put one of them in that slot while he rests.

You can assign an extra SP to the long relief slot in bullpen rotation.

Maybe try leaving your first RP slot empty.....not sure what would hapoen but maybe...
