A position player will be replaced following an injury if there's a position player on the bench able to take his place. Since there were 2 injuries in this inning half, that may not have been the case. So the injured player would remain in the game. Since there are no lasting effects of injuries in SLB, this only hurts your team for that particular game.

I know a fatigue test league that this info could be useful...that's crazy. So if you have no backups at a certain position (or no one else in the higherarchy) then your player won't come out of the game. Seems to me t his could be abused.

This has always been truth.

It's not position heirarchy... It's availability.  They'll put anyone in at SS, but if you run out of position players... Then they'll keep the injured player in the game. 

Before they do that... They'll exhaust all of your position players, including those on rest.

I warned everyone about this in my fatigue league...
It's going to be a 16 team $80m league.
