Rocky Mountain News: Rockies & MLB
Finally! An update on Shealy.
He played 5 innings in an extended spring training game and will play 7 on Friday and 9 on Saturday and go on a rehab assignment if the elbow does not flare-up.
This is important as Eli Marrero strained a side muscle. The Rox are now down to Jason Smith playing 1B.
I wonder if the Rox will push Shealy to get back sooner or will give him 10 games/two weeks to get into baseball shape. Remember he was hurt in the first week of spring training and had no time against live competition.
U-G-L-Y is the Colorado 1B situation right now.
