I'm at the halfway point of my season and Erik Swanson has thrown 71 innings out of the bullpen for Seattle. Zack Britton has thrown 8 (!) for the Yankees. In today's baseball there's no way a long relief man would throw 140+ innings in a season without making any starts. Just as it's unrealistic that Britton (hasn't been injured all year, is in setup role in Yanks pen) would throw 16 innings for the season.
This only bothers me a little bit, but little things do matter. Hopefully someone sees this and they adjust pitcher usage somewhat.
i've notices this for years, if there's two set -up men in the bullpen one of them never plays.
also long relievers soak up all the innings for other teams.
try CPU roster control in the future to adjust the little things such as this
Had this happen in reds mto, everyone in pen with over 60 appearances one guy at 52 and then strop only had 16, and I think most of those were me bringing him in
