A Chicago Cubs pitcher was carted off the field this afternoon after suffering an injury during pregame warmups.

Steve Cishek, a 32-year-old relief pitcher for the Cubs, appeared to get hit in the shin by a ball during warmups in Colorado.

The relief pitcher had to be carted off the field.

Here's video of Cishek getting carted off:

Details surrounding the injury are sparse at this point.

Cishek had been one of the Cubs' best relief pitchers this season, with a 3.21 ERA and six saves on the year.

The Cubs (37-29) are set to play the Rockies at 3:10 p.m. E.T.
