How To Use Tandem Pitchers Topic

Forgive me if this has been discussed somewhere else. I'm relatively new and wasn't able to find anything on the topic.

How do you use Tandem pitchers? I understand what it is and wanted to use this tactic in a league recently when I had a fatigued starter. I wanted this starter to throw 60 pitches or so and then get him out and have the second guy relieve him and throw 40 pitches. When I tried to enter the pair as Tandem 1A and Tandem 1B the request was not allowed. I got a message saying something about swing pitchers and tandem pitchers were allowed but not together and that tandem pitchers could not be followed by a regular rotation spot.

Can someone enlighten me a bit? I would like to be able to use this tactic in certain situations.

Thanks in advance.

You have to use the tandem on your highest-numbered starter.  IE you can go starter 1, starter 2, starter 3, tandem A/B 4, but then you can't have a Starter #5.

Also, make sure you have both set to tandem. I often accidentally select Starter 1B instead of Tandem 1B.

Ok, thanks. I'll give that a shot next time.
