This makes like the 4th or 5th outing very recently where he has failed to go six innings, and in a couple of those outings he really wasn't even struggling...
I really don't appreciate the way he's being handled
Recommendation: Maine had no life on his fastball Monday, as his velocity was mainly in the 88-92 range, down 4-8 ticks from where he normally is. Pitching coach Dan Warthen said that Maine will likely be in that range the rest of the season and he maybe capped at five to six innings in most starts, unless his pitch count is very low. The Mets have few off-days the rest of the way, so don't look for Maine to receive extra rest before most starts, meaning that he will need to rely on his other pitches and find a way to gut it out in each outing; not always a recipe for success.
