Is Jake Injured?

First, this is my first diary.  I feel like I should preface if with "be nice," but I won't.  It would be useless anyway.

I was doing my normal morning Padres blog scroll and came across Anthony's analysis of the Gameday data for last night.  And he's got me worried.

The analysis points out two things: 1) Jake wasn't getting the corner calls, but we knew that; and 2) Jake's break on his pitches is way down.

Anthony thinks Jake's elbow is hurting and that's why he hasn't been locating his slider for the last two games.  He makes a pretty convincing case, just based off of his stats.  And it would explain (though I don't want it to)

Now, I'm not panicking, 'cause that wouldn't help (and really, my nerves can't take it).  BUT, I was wondering if anyone else had any thoughts.
