Auto-bench players switch and doubleheaders


With the new not in line-up function, will it sit a player who starts the first game of a double header and sit the player if they sit the second game? Thanks

Doubleheaders are treated like single games and if the player is red X before the first game and the auto-bench is enabled, they’ll be benched for both games.

thank you

how about the opposite… if they are green for the first game and they play that game but don’t start the 2nd game does that count as a game played? how about if they pitch hi in the second game? thank you

Doubleheaders always lock for both games on the first game.

Separately, if the auto-bench switch is enabled, a green check always keeps a player in. Red x always benches a player.

thank you

Wait, what? Is that an option: To override the autobench on a player to player basis? I don’t see that in my lineups. Or am I misunderstanding what you are saying Niv?

The only green checks I see are for pitchers when they are starting.

Sorry, ‘checks’ was the wrong word. Green = won’t be benched. Red = benched.

Ah. I got you. I was worried that I missed an option somewhere.

Although (low priority) that would be a nice addition to the system. Individual Never Bench options.

I think that granularity becomes basically managing your lineup. So … just manage your lineup. :slight_smile:

If a team roster goes to illegal due to FA pickup, player coming off 60 day DL, etc, will the auto-bench still happen? If I wanted to bench a player on an illegal roster, I couldn’t so I was wondering if the same restriction exists for auto-bench.

I believe, as of now, auto-bench works for all teams, not just legal ones.
