There was a great thread here that I cant find that defended starters being just as valuable as every day players, despite the fact they play every 5 days.
Can somebody please link me?

The maximum a hitter can give you is 11% of your plate appearances.
Your team will pitch around 1458 innings in a year (without extra inn.) and if a SP pitches 200 innings , he will have provided 13.7% of your total innings.

Quick side thought, when thinking about this information... Does this tend to effect your draft strategy with the percentage of hitters to pitchers? For example, when all done drafting, or by a certain round, you try and have 60% hitters to 40% pitchers.

The amount of impact they will have during those match-ups are is constantly up for debate but it is fairly safe to take a conservative estimate that you can give the pitcher credit for about 75% of those and the rest giving credit to the fielders. So pin about 625 PA on the pitcher.
An everyday player will get on average about 650 PA along with the defensive plays they make in the field they will come out creating a much higher impact on a team's success.
