The Diminishing Complete Game

The active MLB leader in complete games is CC Sabathia, with 38. No one else has more than 25. Once Sabathia retires, it’s quite likely that it will be some time before we see another active pitcher with 30 complete games. For a bit of perspective: in 1979, 10 different pitchers threw at least 15 complete games. Phil Niekro, the leader that year, wound up with 245 complete games in his career.
