Found June 26, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Indians starting pitcher Scott Kazmir left tonight's game with an injury, but the injury is unknown. Kazmir carried a no hitter into the seventh inning inning, but was quickly broken up after Manny Machado hit his major league leading 36th double against Kazmir. According to Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer, while throwing pitches in between innings, the Indians trainer came out to the mound and removed Kazmir from the game. Kazmir's injury didn't appear to be serious, but with him you never know. Injuries forced him from the game of baseball and he just started his comeback to baseball. He has had his share of elbow injuries, so if he has another elbow injury, that could be a serious setback in his comeback efforts. Kazmir couldn't really be counted on coming into the year, but he has turned into a nice little investment for the Indians. Losing him would be a blow to the Indians, but not one that would derail their season. On the year, Kazmir is 4-4 with a 5.37 ERA and a 62/23 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Losing Kazmir wouldn't really hurt the Indians too badly, but still losing one of your players is never good. The Indians may be in the market for a number five starter during the deadline if his injury turns out to be serious. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Orioles 6 Indians 3: “Bad” Masterson’s seventh turns a W into an L

Corey Kluber, Indians fizzle out in series finale against Baltimore, lose 7-3

With the gaze of Cleveland sports fans firmly on the Cavaliers and the NBA draft, the Indians picked a good night to play uninspired baseball.
