"What's the No. 1 rule?"
The loss of Gray could end up being the biggest injury that the Colorado Rockies have suffered this season, and that includes the losses of Ian Desmond, David Dahl, Tom Murphy, Chad Qualls and Chad Bettis.
On Johnny Cueto shimmy bobblehead day, it was Rockies starter Tyler Chatwood that wiggled his way up and down the Giants lineup easily. The Giants left fielder spent 11 seasons languishing in the minors, racking up 4,005 at-bats in places like Potomac, Hagerstown and Somerset. He had an X-ray done Thursday night.
However, an MRI performed Friday indicated the injury was more serious. Gray was immediately put into a knee-high protective boot.
"It's a little unusual", Gray told the Denver Post. I don't know how he held onto the ball.
The Giants' only run came on a sacrifice fly by Eduardo Nunez in the seventh inning. Gray leaped and landed on the slope of the mound. He could play first base in next weekend's series at Colorado. He walked slowly off the field.
Rockies: RHP Antonio Senzatela, Colorado's scheduled starter Sunday, pitched seven strong innings against San Diego in his last start for his first major league win. "Something has to give, and that was his clavicle".
Marlins 5, Mets 4: Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton hit back-to-back homers against Fernando Salas (0-1) to cap a three-run eighth as Miami rallied from a 4-2 deficit. The 22-year-old rookie went 4-1 with a 1.82 ERA last season for Double-A Hartford.
"It's just a day when all of us have a chance to say thanks and honor this man", Bochy said.
Gray signed autographs for fans from the camera bay near the Rockies' dugout during their batting practice Friday.
The pain, he said, is mild at most, and mostly when he runs. Morosi speculates that Braun would be unlikely to reject a trade to the Dodgers, both because the team was left off of his no-trade list last season and due to their proximity to his home in Los Angeles.
Shaw has major-league power.
Colorado Rockies pitcher Tyler Chatwood, wearing No. 42 in tribute to Jackie Robinson, throws against the San Francisco Giants during the first inning of a baseball game in San Francisco, Saturday, April 15, 2017. "That one was for Jenn", Crawford said. Parker then opened the regular season slashing just.143/.217/.238 prior to the injury, though he has posted those numbers over a microscopic sample size (23 PAs). If they want to send catcher Tim Federowicz back to Triple-A they must risk losing him on waivers first.
But the Rockies will certainly miss their fireballing right-hander.
