Wichita State sophomore starter Sam Tewes took himself out during the second inning of Wednesday’s game in the Cape Cod League.

“My fingers just kind of started tingling,” Tewes told Matt Schneidman of Kettleers.org. “I couldn’t really grip the ball real well and I wasn’t comfortable, felt like I was hurting the team more than helping. I don’t really know much about (the injury). We’re going to take a look at it tomorrow.”

Tewes is WSU’s lone returner from its starting rotation. He earned Freshman All-American honors for the Shockers with an 8-3 record and a 3.27 ERA. He suffered a dislocated right knee in the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament. Tewes returned to pitch June 14 for the Cotuit Kettleers and is 1-2 with a 7.44 ERA in three appearances.
