Wednesday, in a start against the Nationals, Blue Jays pitcher Kyle Drabek was removed after throwing a pitch and feeling something. People weren't sure at first whether Drabek had injured his leg, or his side, or his arm, or what. People were just sure that Drabek was injured, and he was off for examination.
Now I give you a tweet that is both frightening and reassuring.
#BlueJays Drabek felt "popping sensation" in his elbow. Tests tmrw. Farrell says he's in no pain at the moment.— Mike Cormack (@MikeCormack) June 13, 2012
A pop. Oh man, that's never good news. Unless it isn't accompanied by pain, which apparently it isn't? Care to shed some more light on things, Kyle Drabek?

Drabek was removed from a start after feeling a pop in his elbow. He's not in any pain and the initial tests have yielded positive results. I don't understand, but we'll know more about Kyle Drabek Thursday, after he's re-examined. He might not miss any time at all. He might miss quite a bit of time. Right now it's impossible to say.
