It looked like it was in his forearm.

 

That's not a good sign, either

 

Signs and symptoms of UCL injury can include the following:

  • A popping sound may be heard when engaging in overhead throwing activities. This is the ligament tearing
  • Inability to continue throwing sports
  • Elbow pain on the inner or medial side that appears suddenly or gradually
  • Achy pain to the inner side of the elbow with overhead throwing activity
  • Numbness and tingling sensation to the ring finger and little finger
  • Pain may radiate to the inner forearm, hand or wrist

Evaluation by a sports medicine physician is important soon after the injury to try to determine the correct diagnosis quickly. X-rays are usually normal with this injury. In high-level athletes an MRI is often ordered to ensure that the pain is not coming from an underlying injury to the ulnar collateral ligament, also known as the Tommy John injury. Most of the time, a flexor-pronator strain is treated with rest from pitching for several weeks to give the tendons time to heal. Ice and physical therapy can also be helpful to decrease the athlete’s symptoms. As the pain improves, the pitcher will be started on a long toss program prior to returning to full pitching.
