Chicago Cubs starter Tyler Chatwood was injured during Sunday's 10-1 win against the Cincinnati Reds. In the third inning, Chatwood immediately called for the trainer immediately after a changeup.
Cubs manager David Ross spoke to the media following the win and updated the status of Chatwood.
"Just talking to the trainers, right now, right elbow discomfort," he said. "We'll get him looked at when we get back home.
Chatwood felt some discomfort after two consecutive throws.
"He felt a little something on the breaking ball then he threw the next pitch, a short, spiked changeup and he called us out right away."
Chatwood was previously on the 10-day injured list with some back tightness.
For the season, Chatwood has a 2-2 record with a 5.30 ERA and 1.66 WHIP.
Fortunately for the Cubs, veteran starter Jose Quintana is healthy and will likely be slotted back into the starting rotation.
