Same with Quintana(who got tired last year at this point) and Santiago.

Building these guys up from minors or bullpen over a couple of years is smart.
I agree with this. It's not shutting Sale down, just tapering him off a bit. He's been increasing his work load more and more each year. For whatever reasons pitchers are more fragile, less durable than before. You have to address this on a case by case pitcher by pitcher basis.
