Pirates reliever Joe Beimel is headed for an MRI exam after experiencing elbow soreness during a throwing session this morning.

According to Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com “he first felt pain in his left forearm on Saturday and took the next two days off as a precautionary measure.”

Beimel signed a minor-league contract with the Pirates last month after spending the past two seasons as the Rockies’ left-handed specialist and, if healthy, is all but guaranteed to fill the same role in Pittsburgh.
