Jake Thompson Suffers Elbow Injury

According to Jim Donten, writing over at Claw Digest, Jake Thompson has been placed on the DL with an ACL tear to the right knee irritation to right elbow. The injury had initially been reported as an elbow. I guess it's good that's it not an arm injury, but Thompson could miss the rest of the season if it's a major tear. If it's partial, he could rest and rehabilitate it and be back this season, but we'll have to wait for more information on how bad it is.

4/29 Correction by Jim: Originally MiLB reported Thompson being placed on the 7-day Disabled List with an ACL tear. That information is inaccurate. Thompson was placed on the disabled list with an irritation in the right elbow.
