Unhappy Pitchers dropping like flies since last update

Maybe it's just bad luck, but since the update I've had 4 pitchers go down to injuries in the last four games. What really sucks is it is happening during a pennant chase that culminated with a 1-game playoff to determine the division winnner. Guess what happened in that game? Yep, my best set-up guy goes down with a yet to be diagnosed injury.

Check out this depleted pitching roster. All of the injuries happened in the span of 4 games.

Nothing like a "challenge" to potentially ruin a 101-win season.

Tell me about it. My Astros have the best record in the league, and they have 4 of their 5 starting pitchers on the DL. I would blame the latest update, but I doubt it has any influence on real life.

Building a 100+ win team isn't just about elite guys at the top of your roster, it's about depth littered amongst your 40 man roster and your backups.

As for your point about pitchers, I'm losing all my bats, so I can't say I agree haha. I've lost 5 starting calibre OF including guys I've traded for.

Yah, ok, depth. Well, consider that I only told you what had been happening for the past 4 days (the last 4 days of the season). Before that I had lost my ace in May (out for the season). My #3 starter fell to a torn labrum in August. My #2 missed the last 2 months as well to a strained shoulder. My number #4 starter, although I dropped him from the rotation because he was stinking up the joint, also is out for the season.

Despite that we are up 2-0 in the divisional series against the team that beat us in the 1-game playoff to determine the division winner (both teams finished with 101 wins). So, trust me, I think I've got depth on this team. To reiterate my point about fragile pitching since the last update, my starting pitcher for game #2 of the divisional series exited in the second due to back spasms. In addition, the opponents starter was pulled in the 7th due to injury (that's the 2nd time BOTH team's starters were injured in the past week of the season).

Now for the injuries occurring earlier in the season, I get it. This happens in baseball. But for this flurry of injuries over the past ten games I've played through since updating to the latest version of OOTP 18, that gives me pause. I was just wondering, for those of you out there that play through games at-bat by at-bat, have you been noticing any uptick in the volume of pitching injuries? I should mention in that stretch there have be NO injuries to position players.

I've played 15 games so far in my league, all with the latest patch. There was one game where my opponent lost both their starter and then a reliever later in the game, and I've had one reliever injured. Nothing too out of place. EDIT: Also had one pitcher come down with the flu, forgot about that.

However, my disabled list (from spring training and long-term injuries) contains 5 pitchers and 1 non-pitcher, which got me thinking. So I looked around my league. There's a total of 71 pitchers and 59 non-pitchers currently injured in-game. That's 55% of the DL made up of pitchers. Seems maybe a tick high, but not too too bad.

I'm gonna guess you've just hit a weird string of bad luck.

55% is actually a bit low. See here:

I feel your pain as I've also lost multiple starters before, but that's why I usually have 1-2 guys in my bullpen who can be above average SP and 1-2 guys as minor league depth. In my other league I lost my MVP calibre CF, my LF, my RF, my 2B, my top 2B prospect (who was hitting a 127 wRC+ with 100 2B D), my RF that I traded for because of all the injuries, my C, and other players. Not one pitcher, though.

Which is why I posted - because I've only seen injuries to my hitters in the new patch. Long, 4-6 month injuries, in addition to one guy who went from "Out" for 2 weeks to an unknown period of time (something I'd never seen before). It sucks that you're losing SP, but I'm not seeing the issue as a SP specific thing, as I'm only losing position players.
