    Will the Reds break this MLB record?

    Most starting pitchers used in a season?

    They used 15 last year in 2016. The record is 24. The "modern" record would be 1967 Mets at 20. No team has used 18 since 1996.

    Where do the Reds end up?

    Already at 6 just a few weeks into the season. Gotta figure it will perhaps be 7 when Finnegan's next turn comes up.

    I don't think so, we've used 6 so far and 7 likely coming up with a Finnegan out, I'm thinking we'll use probably 10 or 11 no more than about 13 tho this season, because technically the only reason we're at 6 or 7 is because of injuries, when Bailey & Desclafani come back we can make it 9, and Stephenson, Reed, & Adleman might start at some point.

    Most likely 15 pitchers to get one start or more?

    Already have 1 start:

    1. Feldman
    2. Arroyo
    3. Finnegan
    4. Garrett
    5. Rookie Davis
    6. Sal Romano

    Any other starters so far this year?

    The following are likely to make at least one start this year:
    7. Homer Bailey
    8. Anthony Desclafani
    9. Cody Reed
    10. Robert Stephenson

    Possibly Make a Start:
    11. Tim Adleman
    12. Michael Lorenzen
    13. Blake Wood
    14. Luis Castillo
    15. Barrett Astin
    16. Tony Cingrani
    17. Iglesias

    Anybody else?

    Just listing those pitchers makes you realize why the Reds needed to give a couple veteran arms a chance to play. There are several talented prospects, but they're not capable of pitching 200 big league innings individually.

    To answer the question in the thread: No, the Reds will not break this record this year.

    And some not even close. Only 15 guys threw over 200 innings last year.

    It looks like it will be the 9th starter when Reed's turn comes up again next.
