Man down (updated)

Alfredo Simon only made it into the second inning on Tuesday before an undisclosed injury knocked him out of the game. Simon gave up three home runs in his brief outing — one each to Michael Young, Nelson Cruz and Chris Davis — before summoning the trainer to the mound. Dennis Sarfate replaced Simon, putting the Orioles in a vulnerable position.

Simon was later diagnosed with discomfort in his right elbow, and he’ll head back to Baltimore to be examined by team physicians on Wednesday. There’s no word yet on whether he’ll miss a rotation turn or be forced onto the disabled list for the foreseeable future.
