MLB Injury News:
Lingering right wrist and finger issues have sidelined Rockies outfielder Dexter Fowler during this weekends key series against the San Francisco Giants, and may keep him out of the lineup for the foreseeable future.
Missing in action since initially injuring the wrist swinging on June 25th, Fowler has additionally missed time recently with a bruised knuckle after being hit by a pitch on June 13th against Washington. In what has been a difficult month for Fowler, both injures have been slow to heal and an unwelcoming sentence to the disabled list appears to be a strong possibility.
An MRI taken Thursday revealed no structural damage in the wrist, and previous x-rays ruled out any breaks in his ring finger. If the Rockies were to disable Fowler, they would have the benefit of backdating his stint to the first game he missed on June 26th, making him eligible for reactivation by July 10th, at the earliest.
In his absence, Tyler Colvin and Corey Dickerson will continue to serve as replacements in center field for the Rockies.

Drew Pomeranz was unimpressive in his 2013 debut. It is ok to give credit to an opposing pitcher every now and then.

On Sunday the Rockies lost to the Giants 5-2 on Larry Walker bobblehead day.The Rockies didn't get a...
