And the hits just keep a comin’…
Nope, not the good kind of hits. The Rockies are getting punched from every which way thanks to freak issues nobody could have dreamed up at the beginning of the season. To have Nolan out with a broken finger is one thing, that can be explained. But having a potential “tumor” on CarGo’s finger is another thing entirely.
On the one hand, for the doctors to actually find something during the “exploratory surgery” is great. The fact that they found a “small tissue or tumor which will be biopsied” isn’t the news you’d think would come out of Dougie’s mouth.
Add to that Cuddyer AND Butler both going on the DL in the last few days makes for a very bad June.
There is one good piece of news in all of this: If you were looking to see Tyler Matzek pitch, now’s your chance. He is slated to debut tomorrow against the Braves.
