Diamondbacks starter Ryne Nelson exits game after getting hit on pitching arm by line drive

Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Ryne Nelson was forced to leave Thursday night’s game against the San Francisco Giants after being hit on the pitching arm by a line drive in the second inning. The incident occurred when Mike Yastrzemski’s hit the ball at 87 mph, causing Nelson to grimace and hold his right forearm as he walked back to the dugout.

Nelson, who is 26 years old, threw 27 pitches before exiting the game. He allowed two hits and no runs before being replaced by left-hander Logan Allen. Allen gave up a run on three hits in the third inning, allowing San Francisco to take a 1-0 lead.

Prior to the injury, Nelson had a record of 1-2 with a 5.27 ERA in three starts this season. As a rookie last year, he posted an 8-8 record with a 5.31 ERA. The Diamondbacks will likely provide updates on Nelson’s condition and the extent of his injury following further evaluation.

The Diamondbacks ultimately fell to the Giants with a final score of 1-5. The team will now regroup and prepare for their next game as they continue their season in the competitive National League West division. Fans and teammates alike will be hoping for a swift and full recovery for Nelson as he works through this setback.
