Torrealba Sprains Right Ankle, Pulled from game

New, 7 comments

Yorvit Torrealba was pulled from today's game after injuring his ankle while running out a grounder to short in the fifth inning. Rockies officials are saying it's a sprain and that he will be re-evaluated tomorrow. Depending on how serious this is, it could mean Yorvit starts the season on the DL and the Rockies may have to use Geronimo Gil to back up Chris Iannetta.

Obviously this would affect our depth a little bit and could mean Iannetta sees more action in the first couple of weeks of the season.
