St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jaime Garcia left Monday's game against the Washington Nationals in the second inning after being removed for a pinch hitter. Danny Knobler later revealed on Twitter that Garcia underwent an MRI on his left shoulder.
Garcia gave up a run in the top of the second to Washington starting pitcher Jordan Zimmerman, who used a butcher-boy play to drive home the first run of the game. With runners on first and third and one out in the bottom of the second, manager Mike Matheny called for Skip Schumaker to pinch hit for Garcia. Schumaker brought in a run on a groundout and Jon Jay capped off the scoring with an RBI single to make it 4-1 Cardinals.
Garcia's day was finished after throwing 51 pitches, walking three and allowing the one run. The Cardinals went on to win the game 12-4.
The results of the MRI won't be available until Tuesday.
