Additionally, here's a quote from Hahn: “There was certainly no indication at any point before that start or during that start that he was in the least bit of jeopardy of doing any damage to himself,” Hahn said. “I don’t know the cause, but I do know we’re not going to mess around with this guy if he doesn’t feel like he’s 100 percent or experiencing any soreness.”

Now, I fully realize that even if he somehow KNEW (like you KNOW) that it was due to Robin throwing him too much, he probably wouldn't throw Robin under the bus like that. On the other hand, I think I trust Hahn (even Hahn with a possible motive to lie) more than somebody just guessing on a message board.
