Does anyone know if Lincecum is on any kind of innings limit this year?

One would think around 180 IP as he pitched 146 last year, but I haven't heard anything concrete.

There shouldn't be a cap since he threw 177 IP in 07.

Not worried at all about him being shut down...

However, if you own Chad Billingsley, beware. He only pitched 147 last year. However, with them in the thick of the west race I don't see them shutting their #1 starter down...

Billingsley pitched out of the pen for two months though so he should be ok.

^ Agreed. His body type seems to be more solid than a guy like Lincecum as well. Not that it means anything at all but it seems people don't worry as much about the stockier pitchers.

yea they are going to try and limit his innings. I just hope he pitches the weeks during the playoffs.

Lincecum should be capped around 210 IP this year (his 180 last year over majors and minors + 30), which is virtually no cap at all. Though he has been going deep into games...if he started 10 more games this year and averaged 7 IP/start, he'd get to right around 205. So I don't think anyone should worry. It's not like the Giants are contending for the playoffs and need to skip his starts to make sure he's there in October.
