In back-to-back doses of bad news, the Rockies are dealing with two difficult blows to their team.
- Juan Nicasio is out for the season after knee surgery. Four bone chips were removed from his leg and he isn’t expected to return to any sort of baseball for the next four months. It is possible he could pitch in the Dominican Instructional League in November if things go well.
- Chris Nelson was admitted to a local hospital today and is undergoing tests for an irregular heart beat. There isn’t much information yet because it just happened.
