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.

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.
