I have no doubt Felix will get hurt at some point, but all pitchers do so it shouldn't be a surprise at all if he did.
As for M's pitching who knows, there are a lot of reasons why injuries occur. It could be mechanics, pitch count / over working, size, or how about that structurally they aren't just sound enough. All arms are not created equal
Ryan Anderson never really had anything good on his side besides a great arm. It was great that he was tall and all, but somewhat of a negative too. Pitchers who are taller have to do more work with their mechanics then smaller pitchers, just more variables that can go wrong. Also purely judging by his stats, he had very eratic control. That could be very easily associated that he never had that good of mechanics, that his release point was never consistent.
Soriano had pretty good mechanics, but he also was relatively small in stature and threw upper 90's. I also believe he had an arm injury or two before the recent TJ surgery.
There isn't an exact science obviously, but sometimes you can see it coming or that it could. Which is why people see Kazmir as a RP, and while I hope he doesn't .... I can easily see that there is a good chance of that.
