Hawpe happy for healing time

Brad Hawpe took four stitches in his left pinkie after being spiked during Friday’s game against the Angels.

On Saturday morning, Hawpe showed up at Hi Corbett Field for a follow-up exam and the Rockies said he’ll be back to full baseball activity in 5-7 days. However, he expressed disappointment over not being able to play for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic.

“I wanted to represent my country, but this is part of the game,” Hawpe said. “There’s nothing you can do about it. It’ll keep me out of the WBC, but I can stay here with the team.

“But there’s still five weeks to go until the regular season starts. That’s a lot of games.”
