Rockies | Tyler Chatwood's injury not serious

Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood's (triceps) sore right triceps does not appear to be a serious injury. However, he's flying back to Denver for an MRI exam, and he won't have a bullpen session Wednesday, June 5. He's on schedule to start against the San Diego Padres Saturday, June 8, but it's too early to tell if he'll be able to make that start. "It's just sore. Anytime I tried to throw fastballs to my glove side, it was sore," said Chatwood, whose triceps was packed with ice after the game. "They said it was probably just inflammation, but nothing serious, hopefully."

Fantasy Tip: Jeff Francis (ankle) could be activated from the disabled list to make a start if Chatwood needs more rest. Drew Pomeranz is another option, but the Rockies may think he needs more work in the minors. Stay tuned.
