"If he’s in the major leagues,not necessarily opening day,but if he’s in the major leagues come June,you’re already talking about pitching a full month extra, pitching through September," Picollo said. "The general rule of thumb is 20 percent. You’ll let a guy go 20 percent more innings than he had the previous year. We’ll try to stick to that. "It’s not a hard number,but history and research says that’s how you should handle guys. It’s a good target number to try to achieve from one year to the next. Of course,you’re going to top out at some point in a year. A No. 1 in the major leagues will go 250 innings,but I’d like to think we’ll have that problem in a couple of years."
