CINCINNATI — Reds infielder Jeimer Candelario left Wednesday's game against the Phillies after hurting his right elbow during an at-bat that ended with him hitting a double down the right field line.

Candelario exited the game after the top half of the inning. The Reds are already shorthanded in the infield. Not having Candelario for an extended period would be problematic.

David Bell didn't sound worried after the game. He did say that Candelario hyper-extended his elbow, but they don't know the severity yet.

Cincinnati is off on Thursday. They start a three game series against the Mets on Friday.
