Blue Jays' Kyle Drabek leaves game in fifth inning with elbow injury

Toronto Blue Jays righthander Kyle Drabek was removed from his Wednesday start against the Washington Nationals in the fifth inning after feeling a pop in the back of his right elbow.

Initial tests in the clubhouse showed no loss of strength or instability in the elbow, according to Shi Davidi of sportsnet.ca. More tests were scheduled for later Wednesday to determine the full extent of the problem.

Drabek, however, was optimistic following the game, saying, "I had the Tommy John in '07. It's nothing like that, but it's always frightening. Not too concerned. Once I ran through all the tests and I was strong, it was a relief. ... It's just a little sore right now. Obviously I want to go back out and pitch but it's up the trainers and coaches."

The Jays are already without ace Brandan Morrow, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Monday because of a muscle strain. Drabek is 4-7 with a 4.67 ERA this season.
