Updated Top 250 fantasy baseball rankings: pitcher inning limits

Here’s a great look at the players in danger of being shut down for innings limits.

Ah, but does one count Nola’s 116 1/3 innings during his final year at LSU toward his 2014 total? That would result in a total of 171 2/3 innings, and he’d be on pace for a 22-inning increase. Regardless, Nola was on an innings limit last season and Philadelphia Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro previously hinted a 170-inning limit for the rookie right-hander in 2015. At an average of six innings per start, that would leave 5-6 more starts for Nola’s season, which sounds about right for one of the most important young arms in a rebuilding organization. Risk: High.
