No, this is exactly what this thread is for.

So far we got...Sowers, Felix, Kaz, Liriano & Bedard all possibly being shut down for the year.

I don't think Verlander or Billingsley will since their teams are still in contention, But I think Weaver & Lester might be a early shut down canidate as well if their teams continue to fall out of contention.

I definately don't think the Tigers should completely "shut-down" Verlander, but they should really be watching his innings if they want him to be a playoff force, like he was at the beginning of the season. He has shown signs of fatigue and has even skipped a start do to a tired arm. I think it would be in the Tigers best interest to limit either his starts, or innings per start for the rest of the season.
go 49ers!!!!!

Does anyone think Cain will get shut down(or at least have a start or 2 skipped)? Especially if the Giants fall out of the race.

I'm pretty sure Felix's magic number was 200 innings, not 180 innings. He threw 172 innings last year, so it doesn't make much sense to just have a 180 IP limit on him. In which case he looks pretty safe to finish the year right now.

Not sure Liriano belongs in the same list with the likes of Sowers, Kazmir, et al ... his team is in the thick of things and look to remain that way down the stretch.
Also, he had limited innings early in the season coming out of the pen and, if he does come back, will be doing so off of an extended rest. The only thing that should shut him down would be a relapse or risk of further injury, though he does seem more likely to work in relief than start again this season.

Anybody know other young pitchers this might happen too? I hear that Felix will be limited to 200 innings this year and be shut down.


it would be nice to dump him, he has been killing me all year.

exactly, thought it was a couple years ago. Verlander had tired-arm problems in the past. It would be in their best interest to skip some of his start. But the only thing that's preventing that from happening is that the Tigers is only 4 games up now and has lost 4 straight. Rogers has picked it up. But Bonderman has been unreliable. They'll need Verlander to make the playoff. Now if they are in the situation that the Mets is in now. It's probably a good idea to skip some start and rest him for the playoffs.
