Rockies place Walker on DL

Postby WebHamster » Sun Apr 04, 2004 8:42 am

Las Vegas, NV (Sports Network) - Colorado Rockies outfielder Larry Walker was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a strained left groin. The move was retroactive to March 26.

The 37-year-old Walker suffered the injury early in spring training and aggravated the groin during a recent exhibition contest while trying to check his swing.

Walker, a three-time NL batting champion, hit .284 with 16 home runs and 79 RBI last season. He captured the league's MVP honor in 1997. It marked the first time since 1996 that Walker had less than a .300 batting average.

The 15-year veteran played his first six seasons in Montreal, before spending the past nine in Colorado. For his career, Walker is a lifetime .314 hitter with 351 homers and 1,212 RBI.

Colorado, meanwhile, released outfielder Cory Sullivan, who injured his elbow earlier this spring.
