AH - Where are the RPs?

For a couple weeks I have been looking for a relief pitcher in the high 80's to mid 90's for my bronze level teams. When I search almost all of them are closers and after a few pages the few RP's that show are very expensive.

I have had to convert a few SP's into relievers to fill the void but would rather not do that. Luckily there is no moral in PT or my whole pitching staff would be mad, sad or whatever.

Anyone else have this problem and any ideas or solutions out there,

Thanx
Pine Tar

I always use a fair amount of starters out of the bullpen. Plus closer is a role, to me they are just another reliever with sometimes lower stamina.

The way I am reading this you can't use a closer as a relief pitcher for some reason?

Using SP and CL as middle or long relief is probably the answer. It just seems the AH should have way more players listed as a RP then they do. Nor a huge deal as I am the only one who seems to think it is off.

Is there a better stats for starters that make them a good choice for being a RP? Would I look for a starter who has more stuff or maybe lower stamina,

The majority of reliever cards in PT come from closers, since they tend to have the more notable seasons from the past (and better fit the categories that cards fall under). Thus why most reliever cards in the game are tagged as closers, but there's no functional difference between them and someone tagged as a reliever.

I'm kind of curious (in a totally non-judgmental way) as to the reasoning for the distinction between CL's and RP's. They have been combined in the XX AH, and I wonder if this is a precursor to their total combination in 21, maybe?
