Dusty claims another

Postby AquaMan2342 » Sun Aug 02, 2009 12:39 pm

Volquez to have surgery, almost certainly out for this season and could be in trouble for the beginning of next season re: Rotowire.

Teehee :-D

Please tell me that Volquez saw Dr Andrews, that would be nice symmetry with both Grim Reapers working together on one player.

Harang counts too IMO, even though he's still going.

I'm gonna assume you think Dusty has over-worked another arm, I'm not sure how you can pin this on Dusty :

Volquez / starts & inning progression

2004 - 29 starts / 125 inn
2005 - 22 starts / 135 inn
2006 - 29 starts / 150 inn
2007 - 36 starts / 180 inn
2008 - 32 starts / 195 inn

granted he's had more starts & innings in the minors, but his progression looks fine to me, I for one can't blame this one on Dusty.

How many 120-ish pitch starts did he have in 2008? Anyone got the stats? :-?

13th in total pitches last season......I'm assuming he didn't throw nearly the 3400 pitches in '07 that he did in '08. 4th in pitches per inning (min. 160 IP).

He made 1 start over 120 in length, 121 @ Arizona.

The only thing that might have been extra taxing was a stretch of 5 consecutive starts late in the season where he threw more then 110 pitches.

I still don't think he's been quite the same since he was brought into that crazy 18 inning game last year against SD (I think it was SD?)
If I remember right Volquez had thrown 100+ pitches 2 days earlier, and then Dusty brings him into that extra inning game.
Harang hasn't been quite the same since then either.
