Kris Medlen Leaves Game With Apparent Elbow Injury

This is certainly bad news

Christian Petersen

Kris Medlen was cruising through his start this afternoon but in the bottom of the fourth inning he sprinted off the field after throwing a pitch. He headed straight to the dugout and reportedly was grabbing at his elbow as he headed toward the dugout.

Medlen was in line to start opening day, and we will certainly update you if anything new gets reported. From the looks of it, hope for the best but expect the worst.

Here is a gif of his last two pitches per Jason Collete.
