My number was 130 too, I just didn't want to influence an answer. That seems right to me. And if they make the playoffs and he's one of your best starters, role with it.Setting aside the winter league innings, it's not an unreasonable jump to go from 95 innings in one season to 120-130. If he averages 5 per start for the remainder of the season, assuming at least 10 starts, that would probably bring him close to if not over 130 innings. Assuming he's not showing signs of fatigue or injury, I see no need to shut him down at any point. If he gets to 140 or more, so be it.
Glad I'm not the only one who has no idea what to do with the winter league innings. He's also 26 so I think that should factor in some.
