He pitched 132 innings last season. He has only pitched a total of 74 innings this year with the season 40% over. I am glad they limited his pitch count at Indy early in the year. 150-165 innings would be very reasonable for this 6’4″ 240 pound man.

AJ sometimes doesn’t have great bite on the curve. Liriano occasionally loses command of his change. When JMac was on his curve was outstanding. Morton’s sinker has to be on for him to be ground chuck.
.
Cole has a plus slider. Doesn’t mean it’s always gonna be there.

I know there is a lot of skepticism on how much the late innings guys are pitching. However, I wanted to hear how you feel about Morris and Wilson. They were former starters and put up 100+ innings in a season. How much does it change from pitching every 5 days and putting up 5+ innings to pitching every other day and putting up 5+ innings in a week. Is there a difference really? National media doesn’t seem to acknowledge this.

Then he comes out in his first start and throws all curve balls and that’s what he’s more comfortable with? Does he have this “plus” slider or have reports been confusing it with his curve? I’m confused
