Jon Garland wants increased pitch count
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com (5/17/2013) Rockies starter Jon Garland was not pleased about coming out of the game after five innings against the Cubs on Wednesday. He told MLB.com that he is ready for deeper pitch counts.
Garland is nearly two years removed from Tommy John surgery, which is why manager Walt Weis is still hesitant to keep the 33-year-old out deeper into games. Weis also wants to preserve his pitchers after an injury-plagued 2012 campaign.
"There's some history to the philosophies here," Weiss said. "There's a track record. We also have four guys in our rotation who are coming off injury-riddled seasons where they missed most of the year last year. I don't think it's anything extreme what we're doing. Our starters have gotten a chance to go. They're typically in the 90-100 range, and that's plenty of time to get through a game."
Garland, who threw 93 pitches his last time out, is 3-4 with a 4.89 ERA through his first eight starts of the season. He is scheduled to start Monday against the Diamondbacks.

Jon Garland losing his luster
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (4/23/2013) Rockies starting pitcher Jon Garland held his own through his first three starts, but it felt unsustainable coming off a major injury. If Tuesday was any indication, those fears will prove correct. His ERA rose from 3.32 to 4.68 in his six innings of work.
Garland has shown his characteristic solid control, walking just seven batters in 25 innings, but he also has just 11 strikeouts, as he appears to be struggling to fool many batters. Garland has never been much of a strikeout pitcher, but he has also never fallen below the 4.00 K/9 mark, before now.
Garland is going to have to rely on generating weak contact via groundballs, but even that might not be enough to save his Fantasy value while pitching half his games in Coors Field. Without a pretty ERA, Garand has almost no Fantasy relevance.
