Pitchers on innings limit

Postby King Of Kings » Sat Mar 16, 2013 5:40 am

Hey guys,
which young pitchers do you think will be on a innings limit this season? Here's a short list...

Kris Medlen threw 151.1 innings last season so i'd say 180-185 IP coud be his cap.
Matt Harvey had 169.1 IP in 2012 so i don't think he'll be shut down in September.
Alex Cobb pitched 177.2 frames last year so he's probably going to have a full season.
David Phelps was on the mound for 118.1 innings so if he wins that 5th spot in the rotation i don't see him passing 150 IP anyway.
Shelby Miller threw 150.1 innings in 2012 so i guess again 180-185 IP could be a good projection if he wins the job over Joe Kelly.
AJ Griffin and Dan Straily should both have no innings limit.

What do you think of the hurlers above and do you have any other name that could potentially end up being shut down late in the season?

The Mets won't be playing for anything so I'd be surprised if Harvey isn't shut down at some point. Probably only matters in H2H leagues where you need him for the playoffs.

Fiers went 182 innings so he probably is not on a limit.
Estrada has never thrown over 143 innings so he might have like a 180 IP limit
Wily Peralta threw 175 innings so if he does end up coming up he should be fine with no limit.

Harvey went 170 between AAA and MLB so he should be good for a full season of 180ish innings. just dont expect him going more than 6-7 innings often at all.

But of course its the Mets so whatever the correct decision to make regarding his innings is the one they wont choose.


edit - guess we already covered that so nm

Beachy's a good late-round sleeper, but has never thrown more than 140 innings in a season, so he might be on a 180 IP limit? Probably just means they'll skip a start here and there but...

haha, yeah I don't think we'll have to worry about Beachy approaching 180 IP.

I think Strasburg should be shut down again. I mean, if they limit him to 160 IP then they significantly decrease his chances of injury. Why put the rest of his career in jeopardy for a playoff run?

I'm not too concerned about anyone "only" reaching 180IP...that's a full season for most...unless like Ender said this is H2H and you are worried about the playoffs, if thats the case then I wouldn't be overly worried about my 4th, 5th, 6th SP making it that far as you've probably picked up someone else by the time playoffs roll around anyway. Only 35ish SPers make it to 200IP on the year as it is...just expecting everyone to make it there is high expectations. Your top 2-3 guys can be 200+IP guys but aside from that, getting 180-190IP is fine, and normal.

Will have to see what the decision is on Chapman heading into the season but if he is in the rotation then there is a strong chance he is limited.

Yep, Harvey threw enough innings last year to not have a really short leash but the team is definitely disregarding 2013 altogether from the start (see: left field, center field, and/or right field) so he should go 6 innings every start and get shut down in early September. This is strictly because the Mets have intelligent management now so fantasy owners won't get to watch Harvey throw 220+ innings with multiple 115 pitch starts. They're handling their young arms correctly now.
