I don't think there is anything magical about 100 pitches when it comes to injuries. A pitcher that throws 75 pitches in 2 innings is far more likely to have issues than one who throws 120 over a 9 inning period. Absent of a way to in-game monitor arm,elbow and shoulder fatigue there should be a yellow flag number (100 pitches) and a red flag number (120). Think of it as a tachometer in a vehicle, going above these numbers doesn't guarantee injury but it isn't advisable to live in those zones.
