I'm thinking that he'll be lucky to toss 150 this year and avoid injury doing it. What do ya'll know that I don't, talk to me.
I think assuming injury is a bit of a huge conclusion to jump to. While it wouldn't be the first time a young pitcher with a significant innings jump got hurt, it also wouldn't be the first time one didn't. He actually threw better and harder as the season went along last year, so I'm not as concerned with the potential for injury as some perhaps. Regardless, I think he throws between 175-200 innings next year, and considering his K potential and his GB rate making the big jump he did last year, any progress he makes as a pitcher this year could really make him awesome
