CINCINNATI -- Setting an innings cap for younger pitchers has become the norm around baseball, and that could become a problem for the Reds down the stretch.
Now operating with a five-rookie rotation, Cincinnati could run into trouble with the number of innings for its starting pitchers. When asked how the club will control the innings moving forward, Reds manager Bryan Price held up a yellow-paper legal pad with names and inning-numbers written down. He didn't share the details of the information written down, but made it known this is something the Reds will pay close attention to moving forward.
