Stro' Fo Sho!

I charted Marcus Stroman's starts for Duke during his Sophomore and Junior years. I wanted to see how he faired against the best teams in the NCAA and to put his consolidated stats into context. I also made note of the pitch counts, to see if his arm was abused excessively while in college.

He has a pretty fresh arm for a college pitcher. He was a reliever until 2010 (his sophomore year), and even then he didn't start a game until March 4th against La Salle (the season started February 18th). On the year he ended up starting only 8 games, pitching 64.1 innings, and throwing approximately 1,007 pitches (minus the VT game) or 15.7 pitches per inning, which is about major league average.
