Quisenberry led Major League relievers that season with 129 innings, his fewest innings in a four-year stretch.
“You have to protect those guys like Quiz from the grind they face,” Howser said. “They wear down, too.”
Much is made about starting pitchers and what the impact of the extra demands of a postseason can have on them. Relievers, however, face the same type of strain. They may not pitch as many innings as a starter, but they pitch more often, and for closers, they pitch constantly in high-stress situations.
And when a closer stubs his toe, it’s a headline.
