The finger of fate
A few days ago, Rockies right fielder Brad Hawpe’s left hand was heavily bandaged and he was insisting it wasn’t as bad as it looked. Now, the wrapping around his pinky fit the injury. He took four stitches after being spiked during a game. And he said he is getting closer to his return.
“I’m getting close,” Hawpe said. “I’ll get the stitches out in two or three days, then start jogging around a little bit. I think I could be back in games 5-7 days after the stitches come out.”
