Maybe it's a trend for potential top of the rotation pitchers only.
I think there's a fair amount of anecdotal evidence that young pitchers who get overworked are more likely to suffer injuries and sometimes catastrophic injuries. No team wants to end up with the next Pryor and Wood and have to explain to them why they both ended up with major injuries.
Now probably those guys arms just couldn't handle the stress of big league pitching but plenty of people blame the GM and manager for what happened to them.
Riding shotgun on the Sox bandwagon since before there was an Internet...
