Another injury-related card

Here is Randy Tomlin's 1994 Pinnacle card, which shows him having his elbow examined by the Pirates' trainer.

That would appear to be this game, May 29, 1993, when Tomlin came out of a game due to injury. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, this was the second straight game he had to come out of due to inflammation in his left elbow. (The first game he was taken out of was at Shea Stadium, so wouldn't be this picture. The Pirates lost the game 7-2, and Tomlin was never the same pitcher after off-season elbow surgery.

It seems a little insensitive of Pinnacle to use this picture for Tomlin's card.
