He was pulled today after experiencing a "popping" sensation in his elbow. I watched the game and after his last pitch his right arm was hanging limp momentarily at his side. Further evaluation Thursday but it doesn't sound good.

To add to that, Keith Law wrote today that last year "early struggles led him to overthrow, which led him to pull himself off line, throw fewer strikes and struggle even more. Drabek didn't lose velocity, but the overthrowing cost him command and flattened out his slider, while his curveball -- his best pitch in the minors -- became almost a weapon of last resort."

Law is hopeful of the work the Jays are doing to keep "his delivery on line to the plate and keeping himself calm on the mound, but they might also need to tinker with his pitch selection and get him throwing that plus breaking ball more."

It was your imagination -- he was pretty bad throughout. Real problems throwing strikes. Jays are working hard with him to make his landing position more consistent.

Walked more than he struck out in the majors. Walked as many as he struck out between majors and minors. Seems like he's a AAA-wall type pitcher right now. Maybe he can straighten things out, but he's not ready for the majors.

Was it my imagination or were flashes of brilliance mixed in with the mediocrity last year?
