He and the rest of the Giants staff had a really tough year this year, that came in part to the fact that they were always pitching from behind (since the Giants couldn't score a run to save their lives much of the season) and that the bullpen was pretty bad for much of the season. Also, and I don't know this for a fact but I suspect that the Giants probably had one of the lowest pitches seen per inning in the whole league, which means that their pitchers had much less time to rest. Granted he had a number of injuries and is definitely a risk, but consider that he threw the least number of innings he has since 2001 so if anything his arm should be fresh for next season. Also take into account that next year the Giants will have a much better supporting cast and will still get to play in the very weak NL West.
