Maryland baseball starter Tyler Blohm left after the first inning of his Sunday start against Michigan due to arm discomfort, a team spokesman said.
Blohm was pulled from the game as a precaution, the spokesman said. After he left the game, trainer Tyler Cronin applied ice to Blohm's left shoulder.
Trainer Tyler Cronin was applying ice to Tyler Blohm’s left shoulder. It’s not unusual for a pitcher to get ice after a start, but after Blohm, who generally lasts near 100 pitches, was pulled after 21? Worrying for a team that had Taylor Bloom injured Friday, too. pic.twitter.com/x6GCAGQpol

Blohm's injury marks the third consecutive start a Terps pitcher was injured.
Last Sunday, starter Hunter Parsons exited during the sixth inning when his right leg cramped. The injury wasn't considered to be serious, and Parsons entered in the third inning against the Wolverines on Sunday.
Friday, starter Taylor Bloom was struck in the head by a ball during batting practice while he was preparing for his outing. He entered concussion protocol and was ruled out of the contest.
Blohm was coming off a dominant start last week in which he threw 6 ⅓ innings and allowed one run on five hits while striking out nine in the Terps' 7-1 win over Illinois.
The sophomore left-hander exited his start with a 3.99 ERA, having just tight-roped out of a bases-loaded jam in the opening frame against the Wolverines. Following an error from shortstop AJ Lee to load the bases, Blohm struck out Wolverines first baseman Jesse Franklin and forced left fielder Jordan Nwogu to pop out.
