Chicago Cubs infielder Javier Baez was forced to leave the team’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals after being struck by a pitch.

Baez, who has 14 home runs and 46 RBI this season, was struck on the left elbow by the pitch from Cardinals starter Jack Flaherty.

According to the Cubs, Baez suffered a left arm contusion, and an X-Ray will likely be used to confirm the diagnosis. 

During the game, Cubs manager Joe Maddon told ESPN that he didn’t think the injury was serious.
