Orioles minor league pitcher Jonatan Isenia injures elbow in WBC

Orioles minor league pitcher Jonatan Isenia suffered a strained right elbow injury while pitching for the Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic.

The 19-year-old Curacao native will be replaced on the Netherlands roster by Dodgers reliever Kenley Jansen.

Isenia threw just 3 2/3 innings in the World Baseball Classic, allowing one run on two hits with three strikeouts and two walks. He was added to the Netherlands roster when the final rosters were released.

The 6-foot-2, 180-pound Isenia pitched for the Orioles’ Dominican Summer League team last season, going 0-1 with a 1.47 ERA in 13 relief appearances and allowing 14 hits with 10 strikeouts over 18 1/3 innings.

The Netherlands team, which also includes Orioles top position prospect Jonathan Schoop, has advanced to the championship round of the WBC, which begins Sunday. The Netherlands opens championship round play on Monday against either the Dominican Republic or the United States.
