MINNEAPOLIS -- Something looked a little bit off on Thursday night with Scott Baker, who labored through two innings against the Tigers, throwing 46 pitches while allowing two earned runs on two walks and three hits.
Turns out something was indeed wrong, as Baker left the game after two innings with what the team described as right elbow pain.
Update: Baker has elbow tendinitis once again, according to manager Ron Gardenhire, and he received a cortisone shot after leaving the game.
