Eldred Quits Game With Sore Elbow

April 11, 2001

CHICAGO (AP) _ Chicago White Sox starter Cal Eldred was forced out of Wednesday’s game with the Cleveland Indians after two innings because of pain in his surgically repaired right elbow.

Eldred will be examined by team physician Dr. James Boscardin.

The 33-year-old right-hander has a history of elbow problems and underwent ligament replacement surgery in 1995 while with Milwaukee.

Last season after missing most of the second half of the season, he had a five-inch screw surgically inserted into his elbow to prevent a recurrence of a stress fracture.

Eldred’s second start this season was pushed to Wednesday from Tuesday because of a sore neck. He gave up three hits and a run with three strikeouts Wednesday before leaving and being replaced by Sean Lowe.

In his first start last week against the Indians, Eldred lasted just four innings because of the sore neck.
