Injury prone? I beg to differ.
He had 12 season of a minimum of 25 starts prior to 2001 (minimum 170 IP). Looking at his career numbers, it appears the only time he was injured and missed significant time is 2001 - 2002. No way should he be considered "injury prone" unless you are only counting the last 4 years of a 15yr career in the bigs.
