Issues with followers

When I have a follower in the rotation during simulations, the AI tend to utilize the follower as another bullpen arm. I've noticed this in both perfect team and offline play. Is there a way around it other than not setting the pitcher as a follower until prior to his "starting" spot comes up?

I've had this same thing happen to me several times and actually asked about in another thread although I don't think the developers had a chance to see it. It is pretty frustrating when this happens because it basically burns 2 "starting pitchers" in one game. My workaround has been to manually bench the other follower for 1 game when a follower is schedule to play, but I would love a mechanized solution for this as it's very tedious.

You'd think it's not that hard to fix.. I'd guess that as of now, followers are regarded as bullpen arms by the game and thus would be pressed into service when needed.. all they gotta do is add a line of code that says followers are "not relievers" and therefore covered under the "allow SP in relief = no" check

We only will use guys from the rotation (whether they have a follower tag set or not) as an extreme last resort case if nobody else in the bullpen is available. I know a patch or two back they were used in some cases otherwise, but that should have been fixed sometime in the last couple patches (I forget which one it was fixed in).

Ok thank you.. I'll try some more sims with an eight-man bullpen.
