One thing to also keep in mind wit Fedde is, he pitched quality inning numbers in college as well. He pushed 100ip twice, and also pitched in the Cape Cod League. He's essentially hit 125ip in one seasom before. I believe the talk of % hikes in innings is to a previous career high, not just the year prior. I wouldn't expect him to hit 150 or 160ip, but I'd expect him to definitely hit 120 and probably surpass, barring injury.

Well, not totally sure that's the Nats approach (Fedde is the first fresh-from-college arm recovering from TJS, IIRC). The typical approach has been 20% - 25% increase from the year before, but I look at last year as a half year for Fedde. Say the TJS happened sooner and he was healthy going into ST -- I bet he would've thrown 100 - 120 innings last year (Giolito threw 100 IP in his first full year back from TJS). Given the time between the last time Fedde did actually throw that many innings, I can't see him really throwing north of 120 innings this season, but it's possible. Next season: probably 140-160 at 24 y.o.
