When a game concludes, the starting pitcher for the next scheduled game is locked in and cannot be changed so that the opposition can prepare for the upcoming game. As manager, you can continue to modify your pitching staff, but the pitcher with the baseball next to his name will still make the next start. The only way to have the locked in SP not start the following game is if he is removed from the team. In that case, the first listed pitcher will start the next game.
