A proposal: allowing intra week injury moves

Hi,
We all have had it happen this year. You set your lineup for the week you read the news you double check all the match ups and then on Monday two minutes after the game starts you find out there’s an injury on your team. Seems like out of the blue injuries like Widener have going to the IL with no notice. Now not only do you have an injury on your team but you have a empty spot in your lineup especially if it’s a pitcher you lose that slot for an entire week.

So a modest proposal to help balance players who need to fix the lineups but also not enable players to abuse switching out players. The proposal is that any player in your lineup who goes on the Ayo can be moved to your bench and replaced with a player who is not injured and qualifies for that position.

Clearly players get slightly dinged up all the time so to avoid abuse only players that are officially put on the injured reserve list qualify. In addition the player must not have been on the IL to start the week. This avoids people putting Players who are injured already intentionally in their lineup to avoid a bad match up and then switching the player out

Thoughts?
