hey everyone im replaying the 1968 season im managing the cardinals i have a question about injuries i got 2 player who were injured in a game and it says under injuries/dl flood minor elbow injury 5days mccarver minor back injury 8 days so when i went to play the next days games they were both in the lineup doesnt the game automatically put them on the dl or do i have to watch that game to game they are both listed on injuries/dl under team report and league reports any help would be appreciated thanks RB
As your team's GM, you decide whether to put them on the DL and which (10 day or 60 day DL) you want to place them on. In this case it sounds like their injuries were so mild that they can still play...maybe at slightly reduced effectiveness. Putting players on the 10 day DL with very minor/short-term injuries will keep them from playing for 10 days and they will heal up sooner than that. So you may want to just suck it up and not DL them, then watch their "condition" on their player cards so you can get them back in the lineup as soon as possible...or maybe just use them in limited rolls for a few days (e.g., pinch hitting if needed). Obviously if the injury is more serious, then DL'ng them allows you to bring up a player to give you 25 players on your MLB roster who can play games for you and give you the depth you need at each position.

hey, point guard thanks for that I'm fairly new to this game can you tell me how I put a player on the DL do I have to demote them AAA or something else? thanks, RB
Go to the injured player's card and click on the link on the left side that says "Place on DL", A page will then open which will allow you to place the player on the DL (whichever length (10-day or 60-day) will be shown). Click on that and the player will go off your active 25-man MLB roster.
You can then promote a minor league roster to fill up your 25-man MLB roster.
The DL'd player can be taken off the DL as soon as that number of days have gone by or later if you desire. Again you do this by way of the player's card. When you take him off the DL and return him to your active roster, you will need to demote a player to the minors since you can't have more than 25 players on your MLB roster.

Usually, when a player has a very minor injury they can still play but with a possibility of being less effective then they would be if healthy... this is usually when I elected to send them down to the minors for a fresher player to bring up... doesn't always worked to my advantage but at least, I'm getting these players some playing time... the more severe ones ended up in the DL...
