Pulling Pitchers After Pitch Count


Pulling Pitchers After Pitch Count

What happens when you do this? Do they get hurt more often?

Re: Pulling Pitchers After Pitch Count

I don't believe it causes them to get injured more often, but once tired they can drop off performance wise quite quickly. You can get an extra inning or so by pitching past stamina, but it's risky.
