Pirates left-handed pitcher Wandy Rodriguez told Michael Sanserino of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he has inflammation in his left arm and not a more serious injury.
Rodriguez left his start Thursday in the 1st inning with forearm tightness, and he pointed to his left elbow when attended to by a trainer on the mound. He returned to Pittsburgh for further testing.
UPDATE: More from Sanserino, since he is on the ball right now.
Dan Potash of ROOT Sports also says Rodriguez will throw a bullpen session Monday, June 10. If Rodriguez does not expect to go on the 15-day disabled list, his timetable would indicate returning soon after throwing in the bullpen.
