This is not the kind of tenderness we need.
Michael Lorenzen was scheduled to start today’s game in Goodyear against the Rangers but was scratched due to elbow tenderness, according to Reds manager Bryan Price.
Lorenzen has “elbow tenderness” and getting a couple of days off, Price said. Was checked out yesterday by Dr. Kremchek

The pitcher himself told C. Trent Rosecrans that he’s OK.
Mark Sheldon (MLB.com) reports that the ultrasound on Lorenzen’s elbow yesterday by Dr. Tim Kremchek showed no serious injury.
Lorenzen had "elbow tenderness," Price said. Was given some rest. Ultrasound, exam by Kremchek showed no serious injury #reds

I guess that’s good news. Although I would have preferred “no injury” to “no serious injury.”
