### How many innings can a major league pitcher pitch in a week?

That is a tough question to answer because of variables that
would limit how many innings the pitcher could pitch, such as pitch
counts and how good the pitcher was pitching and, in the National
League, whether the pitcher is coming up to bat in an inning and
the manager decides to pinch hit for him.
MLB starting pitchers pitch every 5 games which means they would
pitch no more than two games in one week. The most innings pitched
in MLB in 2010 was 250 2/3 by Roy Halladay in 33 starts. This
averages out to 7 3/5 innings per gsme and 15 1/5 innings every two
games.
So, the pitcher that pitched the most innings in MLB in 2010
averaged between 15 and 15 1/3 innings per week.
