On Hurley and a September callup

Something for those who have been clamoring for the Rangers to call up Eric Hurley to think about...

After last night, Hurley has thrown 146 2/3 innings this season.

If he were to be called up, either now or in September, and put into the rotation, he's probably looking at ending up at around 180-190 innings this season.

Do you really think it is a good idea for a 21 year old, whose previous season high was 137 innings last year, to throw that many innings?

If not, does it really make sense to call Hurley up for just one or two starts, and then shut him down, given the 40 man roster and option implications?
