Worst news of the season
Hargrove is concerned about protecting Felix. His idea of what that entails, though… from the PI:
“At this point, we’re probably looking at a 170 (cumulative) innings,” Hargrove said. “We’re still going to watch his pitch count; we won’t want him to go over 120, 125 pitches. But no matter what, he’s not going to reach the (maximum) innings.”
120, 125 pitches an outing for a 19-year old running up on his inning limit is crazy. If he hits 120 at any point this season Hargrove should be fired for negligence before pitch 121.
