Most pitchers get saddled with injuries sometime in their career, that is not any sort of epiphany. However, there's no way to know if Sale will run into arm or shoulder problems 1, 2, 3, 5 or 10 years from now. Trading players away on speculative, non-scientific hunches is not good business. I'm not saying Sale won't get injured in his career, but this book you speak of is closer to a conspiracy theory than a history textbook.
