I would be interested in how valid the innings increase rule is when a pitcher converts from a RP to a SP. This would theoretically doom anyone that went from a RP to a SP in one season. It turns out that you're right, but I'm just not sure it's a valid application of the inning increase leads to arm problems rule.
He did have previous arm injuries that the Toronto fans might have more info on (I've forgotten what it was specifically). And might possibly be related.
