From Rotoworld via reds.mlb.com w/ Rotoworld comments:

The Reds will monitor Mike Leake's pitch count on a start-by-start basis.

"I think it continues to be of great importance to us organizationally that we don't ask this kid to do more than he needs to do," said Reds pitching coach Bryan Price. "We are always going to be concerned with the number of innings and pitches that he throws this year. However, I hate to put a limitation or cap on anybody that's throwing the ball well." Leake already has 121 innings through 19 starts this season. The Reds would like to cap him around 170, although they are willing to be flexible. It's possible that he could pitch though September, but fantasy owners should be prepared for the possibility that he won't be available when needed most.
