Eric Young was supposed to get his first start Sunday since the four-outfield rotation began a few days ago. Instead, he is in a Denver hospital for x-rays after a freak pre-game accident.
ESPN New York reports that Lucas Duda was taking swings in an indoor batting cage at Coors Field when a ball he hit ricocheted off a screen and hit Eric Young below the eye. Why can’t Duda do such damage in a game?!
Juan Lagares will start in his place.
