Garcia: Elbow Injury

Here is what Christian Garcia had to say after the game:

“It was some soreness in the elbow.  It was pretty serious.”

“It was pretty much until the third inning, that’s when I started feeling it.  I felt it before, but the more I kept throwing, the more pain I’d get.”

“It was like a pinch.  Only my extension, when I’d extend my elbow.  It was a pinch type of thing, right on one spot.  When I was releasing the ball.”

“It’s kind of like the same pain I had before (when he missed the second half of last year).”

“Tomorrow, I have no idea what we’re going to do.  Tim (Lentych) is making calls, I guess you can ask him.  I have no idea what we’re doing.”

“I’m concerned, of course.  It just keeps happening.  It keeps reoccuring.  I don’t want to get too concerned, because it could be something not that serious, like a little scar tissue or something like that.”

“It was to the point where I was 1-2 on the guy, and the guy already took two bad swings.  If I could have thrown it, I would have thrown it.  I got to the point where I couldn’t throw my next pitch.”

“I had experienced a little something like that when I was in Tampa, where I’d throw three innings and I’d start gradually feeling it.  But it never got to the point where it did when I threw that last changeup.  It didn’t get to that point.  When it got to that point, I said I can’t.  I grabbed that ball, there was no shot I could throw it.”

    After everything he’s been through how could he be so stupid as to keep pitching after his elbow started bothering him. Who knows how much more damage that did to the elbow.

    Still you have to just feel awful for him. Get well soon Christian……we’re all still rooting for you.
