Dodgers’ game in Colorado rained out; today also questionable

first_imgSunday’s game, meanwhile, is still scheduled for 1 p.m. PT despite a threat of snow in the morning. Mattingly said that Kershaw will start that game against the Rockies’ Jorge De La Rosa.Dodgers starter Zack Greinke will also be pushed back a day to Monday, a home game against the Miami Marlins, and Tuesday’s starting assignment is still being discussed.Puig has setbackYasiel Puig will undergo an MRI on his left hamstring Sunday in Los Angeles. The outfielder left his Single-A rehabilitation game Saturday with Rancho Cucamonga because of what the team called “tightness” in the hamstring.Puig went on the 15-day disabled list April 25 and was eligible to return to the Dodgers for Sunday’s game against the Rockies. Since the Dodgers were scheduled to play the Marlins at home on Monday, the team had been targeting that game for his return. DENVER >> Yasmani Grandal was running sprints in the rain at Coors Field on Saturday afternoon. He had just finished playing long toss with Dodgers teammate Clayton Kershaw a few minutes earlier.Otherwise, looking out over a wet, empty park, its infield covered by a plastic white tarp, you would never know a baseball game had been scheduled to begin that night.The game between the Rockies and Dodgers on Saturday was cancelled, or rather postponed. There is a possibility the two teams will make up the game as part of a doubleheader on June 1, when the Dodgers are scheduled to return to Denver.“I don’t think you ever like the doubleheaders later, but the one thing you don’t want to do is lose a starter,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “If it means playing two later, I’d rather do that than play three innings, lose a starter, then scramble for starters moving forward.” That won’t happen now, Mattingly said.“That’s what these games are for, to find out if he’s really ready,” he said. “It doesn’t mean a total setback. It’s not monumental, that he’s blown something up. It just means he’s not ready.”But the MRI is anything but a step forward for the 24-year-old outfielder, who has been dealing with the injury since early in the season. He first reported symptoms April 13, after the Dodgers’ seventh game of the season, and Puig missed four of the team’s next five games.Puig hasn’t played since April 24, when he pulled up lame running out a ground ball in the Dodgers’ 3-0 win over the San Diego Padres. In 11 games this season, Puig is hitting .279/.380/.465.AlsoThe Dodgers released minor-league utilityman Albert Cartwright. He was at the club’s extended spring training facility in Arizona and never played a game after signing in February.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
