Witasick hurt too ....
RHP Jay Witasick said he felt something odd in his right elbow early in what became a 47-pitch sixth inning and noticed some swelling (which grew to the size of a golf ball), but with the Rays short on arms he was determined to finish the inning.
Today he’ll find out the extent of the damage and is likely headed to the disabled list.
Witasick felt something unusual after throwing the second of two breaking balls but was able to continue to throw his fastball, and he didn’t say anything when pitching coach Jim Hickey went to the mound.
“There was no coming out of the game,’’ Witasick said. “I don’t care. These are old parts.’’
