how can you tell if a relief pitcher is tired before entering a game. there is nothing showing if they are fatigue from pitching the day before.

You can only tell if a pitcher is susceptible to being tired before entering a game, and you can tell by looking at their durability rating (DUR). A durability rating consists of two numbers and is typically displayed like this (24/12). The first number represents the maximum number of batters they can face during a game, and the second number is their residual batters faced value. If the second number is less than the first, the pitcher is fine. If the second number is greater than or equal to the first number, the pitcher is susceptible to becoming tired if you bring them into the game. However, you cannot tell exactly how many batters they will be able to face before they show signs of fatigue. As a general rule, if the second number in the durability rating is greater than or equal to the first, it is a bad idea to use the pitcher unless it is an emergency.

For example, if you are thinking about using Storm Davis in relief, and his durability rating is 24/11, he is not yet tired. However, if his durability rating is 24/27, he is likely to be tired when he enters the game or after facing a batter or two.

The following post on the forum is also helpful for understanding pitcher fatigue:

I hope this helps!
