DP/Flex

I'm having a hard time figuring this one out. I have 10 players. PONY rules. If I put all 10 players in the lineup by using DP/Flex, am I gambling that nobody gets injured? For example, let's say my 4th batter is the DP and the leadoff gets injured. Do I now have an automatic out every time the #1 slot is due to bat, or can I put my Flex into the leadoff spot and the DP plays defense, thereby removing DP/Flex?

 

Probably stupid question, but thanks in advance.

    Automatic out. The flex is listed in the 10th spot and can only be on offense in the DP's batting position.

    can I put my Flex into the leadoff spot

    No. The Flex can only bat in the DP spot (#4 spot). If the Flex is batting in the DP spot, this is considered a substitution. The DP is no longer in the game. You have just dropped from 10 players to 9 players.

    DP/FLEX is a good tool if you have 11 or more players, but it usually comes back to bite you if you only have 10
