With injuries in general, you can't follow the "rule of thumb" in certain cases. For example, Spoone didn't pitch for pretty much 1.5 years. He came out this year and pitched a decent number of IP. I am sure they will be cautious with him. They do have to stretch him out though, I dunno how beneficial it would be to stretch him out to only 5IP limits...Its a bit of a different case than normal. We do need to see if he can go 6-7IP, not necessarily every game though.....

Yes, but Spoone was a year older than Klein will be next season, and had logged about 280 innings before his injury. Klein hasn't pitched 70 innings since HS.

I have to say, he looks remarkably polished for a pitcher with such a scant competitive history.

Joe Mahoney as first baseman in 2014. You mean the Joe Mahoney that will never hit 25 homers in the the majors according to Callis. The guy who will never hit .300 with power. How about that!!!!
