Found July 13, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Texas Rangers right-hander Justin Grimm was removed from last night’s contest in the fourth inning after experiencing tightness in his forearm. The Rangers said after the game that the move was precautionary, as they don’t expect the ailment to be serious, according to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com. Grimm would have been a candidate for an early exit regardless of injury, as he surrendered seven runs to the Detroit Tigers in only 3 1/3 innings. Whatever the case, the right-hander was discouraged by the outing, but he said he’s hoping to be able to make his next start after the All-Star break. "Discouraging? Yeah," Grimm said. "I try to take care of myself as best I can and do all my work between starts. I take pride in staying healthy and going out there every fifth day. This is not what the team needs, especially with what we're going through. Hopefully, I can get back out there as quick as I can." Grimm’s ugly outing included seven runs on a whopping 10 hits and two walks with three strikeouts. He threw 70 pitches on his way to raising his ERA to 6.37 on the season. Grimm joins the extensive list of ailing Rangers’ pitchers. The team already has starters Colby Lewis, Nick Tepesch, Alexi Ogando, Yu Darvish, Matt Harrison and Neftali Feliz on the DL with injuries of their own.
