That's actually not true. He threw 78 innings this year, plus he's throwing in the AFL. That is significantly more work than Gibson put in for 2012, and he threw a touch over 150 innings this year.
There is no reason to think Meyer won't be green-lighted to throw at least 150-170 next year. He will be on a similar course as Gibson was this year, so with early success he could easily throw 50+ for the Twins next year.
I exaggerated a little bit. I still wont trust the shoulder until he throws an entire season without trouble.
