Chicago White Sox reliever Garrett Crochet exited Thursday night’s Spring Training game against the Reds with a reported left arm injury. The big southpaw initially entered the game to begin the bottom of the eighth inning but faced just one batter. After striking out Sebastian Almonte on three pitches, he called for trainers before exiting the field.

Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports Crochet “appeared to make a sweeping motion with his arm in front of his body after a pitch” before calling for the trainers.

According to the Reds radio broadcast, Crochet “[wasn’t] moving that left arm a lot” and “[looked] very, very dejected as [he left] the field.”

Garrett Crochet is no stranger to arm injuries. In college, arm soreness limited him to just one game during his junior year before the COVID-19 pandemic halted the season. Later in 2020, Crochet exited a White Sox playoff game due to left forearm tightness, which was later ruled a flexor strain.

UPDATE: Chicago White Sox GM Rick Hahn said Crochet’s MRI results were “not great” and the lefty will likely require Tommy John surgery.
