Here's the problem

I like to manage in the minors and work my way up the majors. Inevitably every season I have injuries to my relief corps and wind up with only 4 relievers and 5 starters and I can't sign anyone to replace them while they are on the DL because the major league gm controls the team and doesn't do anything to help my team. Is there any way around this or do I have to wait for this to be addressed next year? Commissioner mode doesn't change anything in season, I'm still stuck with just 9 pitchers. And these injuries are 1-2 months at a time.

I've never done this, but I assume as long as your managing the minors you are an employee of your Major League GM and have to play with the cards you're dealt
I'm going to have to meet my Maker some day.
And if He asks me why I didn't let this boy play,
and I say it's because he's black,
that might not be a satisfactory answer.

Here's the problem

I play in a similar fashion. Here’s what I do:

1. Create a separate commissioner identity.

2. Play the game “logged in” as my normal manager identity.

3. If I get into a situation like you describe, I log in as the commissioner and deal with it. What I will often do in cases like this is “act as” the GM of the major league club, then sign a few minor league FAs. You can do it more directly by just editing FAs to be on your club, but I like to try to do it the other way because then it shows up in transaction logs etc. But that doesn’t always work quickly because sometimes the player takes a while to respond, or the AI puts them on a different club.

4. Then I log back in as myself and continue playing.

Also I’ll note that this has been the case for many versions. Markus just hasn’t prioritized the minor league management experience and honestly, I don’t expect that to change. So, i would just get comfortable with the limitations and workarounds.

Let me know if you have any questions!!
