Better to limit his use and get some effective use in high leverage situations than lose him entirely.
Another example of fans not having the same info as the team.
I actually agree with this assessment, but to play devils advocate a bit, what if the "cranky" shoulder is due to lots of warming up but very little actual work. Maybe he needs longer stints in order to stay in game shape? I remember I had a teammate who was like that...but he complained alot so I took everything he said with a grain of salt.
