Jon Rauch, who served up the game-deciding two-run homer to Allen Craig in the eighth inning of Monday's 5-4 loss, has been dealing with elbow "tenderness," manager Terry Collins said. Rauch was unavailable postgame because he was being examined by team doctors, a team spokesman said.
"Right now we're going to have him checked," Collins said. "He's got a little tenderness. ... He's been doing fine with it. He said it pops up once in a while. And today, he said, after he got warm and got on the mound, all of a sudden his arm was bothering him. We're going to have it looked at."
Rauch, 33, signed a one-year, $3.5 million deal during the offseason to serve as closer Frank Francisco's primary setup man.
