I totally disagree.  He hadn't had a stressful inning.  He had only given up two hits at the time.   He got the first out and was only at 99 pitches.  He could have easily finished that inning and then Phelps for the save.  It was his first MLB start this year but he was already stretched out in the minors.  Mattingly is an ass for taking him out. Thank God URENA brought his A game tonight.

A mindset of "just 99 pitches" is how you end up with a pitcher needing Tommy John surgery at 24 years old, losing him for 18 months when it is completely unnecessary.

He's 24 in his first MLB game of the season. No reason for that 

He had two more outs in him.  Mattingly over managed.  Not impressed by his in game decisions so far.

As I've written before, he's pitched 3 straight games. He's off limits and for a reason. Not like he's Renyel Pinto.

You can blow your arm out on pitch one just the same as pitch 100.  He's not a flame thrower so there is less risk of injury to begin with.

In that way you can blow your arm out on pitch 1 like you can pitch 300. Lets start putting guys out there all game like Cy Young and Walter Johnson while we're at it.
