Sox Reliever Smith Suffers Apparent Right Elbow Injury

UPDATE: Still waiting on tests.
Just what we need! Carson Smith, the guy the Red Sox are counting on to be the anchor of their late-inning bullpen, suffered an apparent right elbow injury in yesterday's win over the Cardinals. Smith came out of the game after complaining of "forearm tightness"—which was later (scarily) referred to in some media reports as a 'right elbow' injury. Smith is going for an MRI today on the elbow. If he goes down, it will be the second major blow to the pitching staff—after the knee injury which is still sidelining starter Eduardo Rodriguez. Stay tuned for updates from the crack Red Sox 'medical' team—which, of course, says he "feels better" today. Beware!!!!!!
