Interesting tweet from Denver Bundy

Recommended Posts

Your mistaken assumption here is that all innings are created equal. Workload has to do with more than just an IP tally.

All innings are 3 outs, now of course some can take more or fewer pitches. But that would argue for pitch count being what should be limited rather than innings.

Unless you're arguing that Bundy is more likely to overthrow at a higher level, but that's something he has to learn not to do, so putting him at to low a level once again doesn't solve that.

There is no evidence to suggest that an inning the majors is more likely to cause an injury than an inning in LowA, nor does it make logical sense - sorry but your body doesn't know what level you're at.

How would you define workload?

Innings pitched, number of pitches total, number of pitches per inning, quality/consistency of competition, high-stress vs. low stress situaitons.

Your body doesn't know what level you're at. But pitchers exert more effort and accumulate more stress on the arm the longer innings go, and most pitchers will take a little off against weak hitters and reach back and add a little more vs. tough hitters. Those 30 IP at Delmarva were low-stress.

What is an exaggeration? Did you compare his HS stats v the Low A stats?

DB is striking out a smaller % of batters - something like 65% in HS v 40% in Low A, but the ERA, H/IP, etc are very comparable if not in favor of the HSers.

If he was turning over the lineup and going 7 innings deep, the numbers would not favor the high schoolers. He was given a level below his talent and added ease of short starts. Awesome how dominant he was, but let's not confuse his stats for something that necessarily evidences the expected level of dominance had he thrown six or seven innings a start.
