I would have expected better from the forum community. There isn't a setting that causes the manager to use common sense. Using auto rest should give players the day off barring an injury or situational opportunity in a close game. Had one of my players been injured in the first inning the sim puts a pitcher in for the remainder of the game? If so, that is equally flawed. I am looking for real life simulation of baseball here not because the computer says so.
No, if there's an injury, he'll play.
Benching someone and resting them are two different things in this game. You're using auto-rest, and rest means no playing unless an injury to someone else necessitates it. I wouldn't have a problem if they added a setting that allowed you to use a player on rest for PH only, but I don't think the current design is wrong.
