I am sure if you polled them, the majority of MLB pitchers will tell you that they have had similar symptoms in the past. It is most likely something like slight inflammation of the ulnar nerve (which could be bad), or just overexertion on a couple of pitches. Let the news come out before you determine that this guys career is over from one symptom.

Edinson Volquez has been cleared to begin throwing again. He'll start Friday by throwing from 60 feet off flat ground. He's basically starting over.
"That's bad," he said.
But his arm feels good. He was examined yesterday by Dr. Tim Kremchek.
"I don't feel any pain," he said. "He stretched it, twisted it. He's going to check me every time I throw."
Volquez was surprised when he was shut down again last week.
"Yeah, because I didn't feel any pain," he said. "But the MRI showed some inflammation."
Volquez has been on the disabled list for all but a one-inning outing since May 16. He had a back problem, followed by the inflammation in his elbow.
