rookies and cream wrote:According to Rocky Mountain News:Garrett Atkins said his stiff neck felt much better. He was scratched from the lineup Saturday and didn't play yesterday but was taking ground balls during batting practice and doing some baseball-related activities before tonight's game. Manager Clint Hurdle said if Atkins suffered no spasms he might be available to pinch hit tonight and could return to the lineup tomorrow.
That's encouraging. You have to think they would want to avoid putting him on the DL regardless of how hurt he is. Their lineup has been terrible the last few days.
