Fifth year senior Sheldon Reed left Saturday’s game against Stony Brook in the eighth inning after what appeared to be an elbow injury. Reed was making his second appearance of the season and was looking like he would have a substantial role out of the pen in the final season of his career.
After getting a strikeout to end the seventh with runners on second and third in what was one of the biggest moments of the game, Reed came back out for the eighth. Against the second batter of the inning, one of his pitches bounced well short of the plate, and Reed immediately knew something was wrong, eventually pointing to his elbow as he walked off the field.
While nothing has been confirmed as to what type of injury it was, it didn’t look good. Head coach Monte Lee opened up his post game remarks by encouraging everyone to pray for his player.
