Huston Street Hit With Line Drive, Taken to Hospital

The Rockies just cannot catch a break lately, at least not the good kind.

Hours before opening a much needed homestand against the road-challenged Pittsburgh Pirates, the Rockies lost their closer for an unknown period of time, barely a month after he returned from the disabled list.

Huston Street was warming up in right field during batting practice when he was hit in the "pelvic area" by a line drive off the bat of Ian Stewart.  

MLB.com's Thomas Harding was first to report the incident, and he has this insight:

Rox trainer Keith Dugger said Street was hit in the pelvic area. He fainted "2 or 3 times" from pain.

That does not bode well for the Rockies.  Street was transported via stretcher to an ambulance, which has taken him to Rose Medical Center.

There is no word yet on the extent of Street's injuries, but we will update you as soon as we know anything.

UPDATE:  

ckies say closer Huston Street has a right abdominal contusion, is "at home, resting comfortably," and his availability is day-to-day.

Note that means he has already been released from the hospital.
