  • 2K23: Colorado Rockies

    Much as I hate to start this thread with potentially bad news...

    David Dahls back issues more serious than Rockies originally thought

    Originally posted by Denver Post
    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. The back issues keeping David Dahl off the field and in the training room during spring training are more serious than the Rockies first thought.

    Manager Bud Black confirmed Friday morning that Dahl could be out much longer than the club originally anticipated.

    We first said David would be out a couple of days, but its going to be longer than that, for sure, Black said. I dont have a timetable on it, but it could be a week or two. There are some things going on with his back. David is undergoing some tests, and scans, and treatment to see what is going on.

    We do think hes going to be fine, but its going to take longer than we first thought. Like I said, we dont have a real timetable on this.

    I'm having very, very bad flashbacks of Mike Lansing.
    I'm just here for the baseball.

      So, putting a silver lining on this, do we bump up Gerardo Parra now? Had a bad year last year, but it is Coors, and he's a decent player...

        That really sucks...for the person I traded David Dahl to!
        Considering his only baseball post in the past year was bringing up a 3 year old thread to taunt Hornsby and he's never contributed a dime to our hatpass, perhaps?

          Rockies' Chad Bettis: Diagnosed with cancer recurrence
          2 hrs ago | by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
          Bettis says that his testicular cancer has unexpectedly spread and he will begin chemotherapy in the near future.
          It's heartbreaking news for Bettis, who underwent surgery this offseason and was presumed to be cancer-free heading into spring training. The 27-year-old says his blood tumor markers are at normal levels and that he remains committed to fighting the disease. Bettis will likely begin a chemotherapy cycle within the next week, an extensive process that will keep him out indefinitely.
          The rockies seem snake bitten already, but this is certainly terrible news for Bettis on a personal level.

                I would think German Marquez or Jeff Hoffman as SP5.

                  Sorry, I was thinking about the Dahl injury, not the Bettis thing

                    Dahl's supposed back injury turned out to be a rib injury. He might make it back to Spring Training.

                      Is Tapia definitely headed to AAA to start the season? Or is there a risk he starts in the bigs?

                        apparently the answer was that he headed to AAA for two weeks, but he's up now. Starting tonight in LF.
                        In the best of times, our days are numbered, anyway. And it would be a crime against Nature for any generation to take the world crisis so solemnly that it put off enjoying those things for which we were presumably designed in the first place, and which the gravest statesmen and the hoarsest politicians hope to make available to all men in the end: I mean the opportunity to do good work, to fall in love, to enjoy friends, to sit under trees, to read, to hit a ball and bounce the baby.

                          Jon Gray with a stress fracture in his foot, so he'll miss at least 4 weeks.

                            I think he's probably just up while Parra is on paternity leave (2 days or so).

                              That sucks. I am all in on him this year. I just hope he can come back strong.
