I certainly wouldn't have wanted Bouman to throw 130+ pitches. Being pulled with 60+ having given up only two hits at that point in the game is inexcusable.



Oh I agree with you there.

I'm just really sick and tired of seeing these college coaches just trotting these kids out there. Hell, that Houston pitcher topped 170 pitches in like 3 days. That's insane.

Tommy John usage has been on the rise because of the increased usage of pitchers at the early stages of their careers.


But pitchers used to pitch double headers back in the day.

Did you even read your own article?

quote:

“The big risk factor is year-round baseball,”


quote:

The harder you throw, the more torque you put on your elbow, the more likely you are to break down and get injured — and it’s happening at historic rates and happening to some of the best power pitchers in the game.”


So hence if that guy isn't a power pitcher and hangs in the mid to low 80's his arm probably can withstand 130 pitches in a given night. Now if you do that repeatedly, it's probably not a good practice, but not sure why you're condemning the coach without knowing all of the specifics.
