    MLB wants to make starting pitching more prominent, but it's a tough task in today's game

    Max Scherzer logged at least 179 innings in 10 of his first 16 years in the majors. “I became a better pitcher once I went through three times in the lineup and was failing on that third time through the lineup,” the 39-year-old Scherzer said. The state of starting pitching has the attention of MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred, who said in October the league is considering lowering the maximum of 13 pitchers per team to 12 possibly as soon as the 2025 season — with the goal of placing a greater emphasis on starting pitchers.
