Ironically Lincecum is 5th in baseballprospectus Pitcher Abuse Points rankings. He has 10 games with 110+ pitches including 1 game with 122+.
Jon Lester is 10th and Cueto is 20th. Other notables include injury-prone Sheets (3rd) and Nolasco (6th).
TB seems to be very conservative with their pitchers with Garza (1st full season) at 62, Kazmir (injury prone) at 64, Jackson at 78, and Shields at 122. Other notable young pitchers are Jon Sanchez at 68 and Billingsley at 72. I'm not saying that this is the right approach, but theoretically they should be less likely to suffer an arm injury (mechanics are obviously very important also) or a dead arm at the end of the season. http://www.baseballprospectus.com/stati ... cid=204015
