Loewen left his Thursday start after just 2 2/3 innings and admitted that he had been pitching through pain. This is the same elbow that caused Loewen to miss most of last year due to a stress fracture that required surgery. It's unclear just how long he'll be out, and Matt Albers or possibly Jim Johnson seem like the favorites to start in his place.
