    Some mentions about Leake from the article:

    "It's a hot issue," Cincinnati Reds pitching coach Bryan Price says. "We want to win, but you have to be cautious to keep from injury."

    Some mentions about Leake from the article:
    If they are going to limit his innings, go ahead and just move him to the bullpen already. Give him a bit of time to acclimated and he could provide some extremely valuable relief help in September and possibly beyond.

    Even being delegated to simply relief from here out, he's going to approach somewhere around 175 innings provided the Reds do make the playoffs and he stays on the roster.
