I tend to think the answer is a pretty obvious “no” here.
After all, Stephen Strasburg averaged just 77 pitches per start in the minors and 92 pitches per start in the majors, never cracking even 100 pitches for the Nationals. If anything, his only big workloads came in college at San Diego State, where he regularly threw more pitches than the Nationals would have been comfortable with. Sometimes, pitchers just get hurt.
